Grant MakingOne of the most powerful ways HRiA takes on health challenges is through its grant making services. We help to identify individuals who are uniquely positioned through their ideas or skills to make a difference in critical areas. Working with public and private funding sources, we bring together those who possess the ability to make change with those willing to invest in it.
The scope of our grant making capabilities is virtually limitless, catalyzing a wide array of scientific investigation and community programs. Our client's biomedical research grant programs span the continuum from basic laboratory investigation to new treatment discoveries for age-related macular degeneration, brain tumors, eating disorders, and other devastating diseases. Our public health grant programs include a statewide initiative to overcome epidemic obesity, a youth tobacco prevention movement, and a physician recruitment program.
Our biomedical research grant programs engage internationally recognized investigators who serve on our independent scientific review committees to critique and discuss more than 1000 grant applications and research progress reports each year. Our public health grant and fellowship programs utilize comparable standards to allocate resources in areas that will best improve health status. In 2012, our clients' programs awarded nearly $20 million in funds to scientists and community health programs across the United States, Israel, and Europe.
With declines in government funding, private philanthropic dollars play an increasingly important role in stimulating research and supporting community programs. Our clients are individuals or organizations whose commitment to innovation contributes meaningfully to advancing health. Together, we work to identify a target niche and then implement a customized grant program that maintains the highest of standards and attracts the best in the field.
