Now accepting applications for new research that evaluates the effects of actions on air pollution, health outcomes or both in historically marginalized communities


Health Effects Institute is excited to announce a new funding opportunity: Request For Applications (RFA) 23-2, Assessing Changes in Exposures and Health Outcomes in Historically Marginalized and Environmentally Overburdened Communities from Air Quality Actions, Programs, or Other Interventions.

HEI is seeking to fund studies that evaluate actions, programs, or other interventions at the national, regional, tribal, state, or local level that have affected or have the potential to affect ambient or indoor air pollution exposure, health outcomes, or both in historically marginalized and environmentally overburdened urban or rural communities in the United States. This RFA is modeled after HEI’s long history of funding accountability research to assess the effects of air quality actions on health outcomes.

HEI expects to fund a small number of studies (2 to 3 years in duration).

Interested in applying? Join our webinar on August 14, 2023 from 2-3pm (EDT). We will help guide you through the application process and answer your questions. Participation in the webinar is not a requirement to apply to the RFA. A summary of the webinar will be made available on our website.

Please note, the deadline for Preliminary Applications is September 29, 2023.
