Call for Proposals: Technology, Infrastructure, and Health Pioneering Ideas

October 17, 2018


For this funding opportunity, we will award up to $2.4 million to fund projects within the $200,000-$400,000 budget range and with a project term of between 12-36 months.


Where we live, how we get around, and how we work and play are increasingly influenced by technology. As we look to the future, we anticipate changes to our infrastructure, spurred by technological innovation, that could significantly impact our health.

Whether considering how driverless transportation will reshape cities or how large data centers might impact rural communities, we are interested in understanding how emerging technologies will transform infrastructure in ways that might help or hinder opportunities for everyone in America to live a healthier life, now and in the future.

Through this exploration, we’re looking for projects that explore the relationship between technology, infrastructure, and health and examine how technology’s impact on infrastructure in the near future (5-10 years) could influence our efforts to improve health equity in the United States
