Solving our most intractable health challenges requires innovative, transformative and sustainable solutions.
With the i2 Challenge Grant, we seek market-based and/or transformational systems-change solutions with the potential to improve access, quality and health outcomes for the most systemically marginalized and under-resourced populations of San Diego and/or Imperial counties.
The i2 Challenge Grant represents a 12-month demonstration and workshop cycle that allows eligible i2 applicants to hone their business plan and grant proposal with the aid of experts provided by Alliance and our Innovation Partner (TBA). The 12-months also allows our Program and Evaluation Committees time to get to know the applicants and develop a deeper understanding of their innovation solution.
For information about the 2022 i2 Challenge Grant, including eligibility, i2 Journey timeline, evaluation considerations and more, visit the 2022 i2 web page.
