Advancing Sustainable Innovation:
INNOVATION INITIATIVE (i2) $1 MILLION MILESTONE-BASED CHALLENGE GRANT
One of the most efficient ways we can support population health improvement is by helping innovations succeed, scale and achieve sustainability.
We believe that your zip code, race, socioeconomic status, gender or ability should not determine your life expectancy. Through the i2 program, we help nurture and scale sustainable solutions aimed at closing gaps in health equity. We have supported (and have continued evolving) this innovation initiative since its inception in 2010.
The 2022 i2 12-month capacity building and mentorship program concluded in January 2023 with an unprecedented announcement by the AHF Board of Trustees that they had decided to double the i2 investment and award two of the finalists each with a $1 million milestone-based challenge grant.
