Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International scholars for health research on the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to investigate the relationship between exposure to air pollution and health outcomes associated with COVID-19.

Request for Applications 20-1B solicits applications for research on novel and important aspects of the intersection of exposure to air pollution and COVID-19 health outcomes. Applicants will be asked to submit a detailed letter of intent, followed by an invited full application, using an expedited application review process. HEI is particularly interested in applications that address the following questions:

  1. Accountability research: What are the effects of the unprecedented interventions taken to control the COVID-19 pandemic on emissions, air pollution, and human health?
  2. Susceptibility factors: Are individuals/populations who have been chronically or acutely exposed to higher levels of air pollution at greater risk of mortality from COVID-19 compared to those exposed to lower levels of air pollution? Do the effects differ by race/ethnicity or by measures of socioeconomic status?

HEI encourages interested applicants to submit applications for projects of varying lengths and budgets as follows:

  1. Small studies of 1 year in duration with a maximum total budget of $250,000 (direct and indirect costs), to pursue a research project using existing data.
  2. Small to medium-sized studies of 2 years maximum in duration with a maximum total budget of $500,000 (direct and indirect costs), to pursue a specific research question that can be completed in the specified time frame.

Pre-Application Information:

Timeline:
- Letter of Intent Due Date: June 8, 2020
- Full Application Due Date: September 9, 2020
- Applicants will be notified about the funding decision by the end of October, 2020.

All letters of intent received by June 8 will be considered. Researchers who miss the deadline for submitting a letter of intent should contact HEI as soon as possible to determine whether their application can still be considered.

The application process consists of two stages. The first stage involves the submission of a letter of intent, which is reviewed by the HEI Research Committee at its June meeting to ensure the application is responsive to the RFA. If the Research Committee determines the letter of intent to be responsive, then the investigator will be invited to prepare a full application. Full applications will be sent out for external peer review and discussed by the Research Committee at its October 2020 meeting. For particularly promising and timely proposals, the Committee may consider a fast-track review of full applications. Those researchers (if any) will be contacted in early July.
