Grantee Research Project Results
Health Effects Institute
EPA awarded a $25 million grant for the continuation of the Health Effects Institute between 2010 and 2015. HEI is an independent, nonprofit corporation supported jointly by EPA and industry. The Strategic Plan of HEI 2010-2015 identifies ways to improve understanding of the health effects of the air pollution mixture as a top priority and will focus HEI’s efforts on three key components of that mixture: particulate matter, the gases and air toxics. HEI’s research also includes measuring health outcomes and benefits resulting from air quality actions; and assessing potential health consequences of new fuels and technology.
