Funding Opportunities

Active RFAs

This award supports creative junior investigators, at Assistant Professor or equivalent level, with outstanding promise who are interested in the health effects of air pollution. RFA 18-2 provides up to 3 years of funding for a project relevant to HEI's research interests, as outlined in the HEI Strategic Plan 2015-2020. All applicants should contact HEI to verify their eligibility before applying.

HEI is seeking to fund studies to assess the health effects of air quality actions, also known as accountability research. Accountability research refers to empirical studies assessing the effects of regulatory actions, other interventions, or “natural” experiments on air pollution and health (sometimes also referred to as intervention studies).
