AHF Innovation Initiative Grant

Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) seeks innovative solutions that significantly and positively impact health and wellness issues through systems change.

AHF developed the Innovation Initiative (i2) to support transformational thinking and action to improve systems related to health and wellness. AHF is interested in innovative solutions that address healthcare access issues, that reach our target populations (the poor, uninsured and underinsured, children and the homeless), and that use innovation effectively and in ways that reduce costs, increase capacity, or improve quality.
