Funding Opportunities

How to Apply

This RFPA provides an application mechanism for investigators whose area of interest falls outside of the topics targeted in other requests for applications from HEI. Of greatest interest is research that is relevant to HEI’s current priorities, as outlined in the HEI Strategic Plan 2015-2020.

RFPA 15-2 provides funding for two studies of up to 2 years or 2.5 years in duration, with a funding cap of $400,000 per study.

Upcoming RFAs

HEI expects to issue the following RFAs in the Fall of 2016:

  • RFA 16-3, open request for small, innovative studies on air pollution and health in general. 

Project Negotiations and Investigator Commitment

HEI's research oversight and review processes are different from those at many other funding agencies. Please familiarize yourself with the requirements before applying. Read about the scientific negotiation of project plans, the research agreement (contract), quality assurance program, progress reports, site visits, annual conference, final report, and publications.
