Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, government agencies, for-profit organizations, and educational organizations for air quality research. Applicants must submit a preliminary application before applying in full. Funding is intended for research on novel and important aspects of the health effects of air pollutants, particularly those derived from motor vehicle emissions.

This Request for Applications (RFA) provides a mechanism for investigators whose area of interest falls outside of current RFAs, but is compatible with the HEI research program and mission, to apply for HEI funds. 

HEI is particularly interested in applications that address the following topics:

  • Accountability or effectiveness of air quality regulations
  • Strengthening causal interpretation of evidence from existing cohorts
  • Contributions of wildland and agricultural burning to air quality and health

Additionally, applications will be considered not only on these three specific topics, but also on other issues related to improving understanding and assessment of the health risks of exposure to motor vehicle emissions, secondary pollutants derived from them, and the whole air pollution mixture to which they contribute. HEI’s current areas of interest are described in the draft HEI Strategic Plan for the Health Effects of Air Pollution 2020-2025.

The new Strategic Plan focuses on four key areas: (1) Accountability: testing the links between air quality and health; (2) Questions related to the complexity of the air pollution mixture; (3) Transportation and urban health; and (4) Global health.

Applications will be accepted for the following topics:

  • Accountability or effectiveness of air quality regulations
  • Strengthening causal interpretation of evidence from existing cohorts
  • Contributions of wildland and agricultural burning to air quality and health

Applications will be considered not only on three specific topics outlined above, but also on other issues related to improving our understanding and assessment of the health risks of exposure to motor vehicle emissions, secondary pollutants derived from them, and the whole air pollution mixture to which they contribute.
