The Healthy Idaho Grand Challenge is focused on improving physical and social conditions to foster healthy and thriving communities throughout Idaho.

We invite applicants to submit a proposal for projects that show clear potential for improving the health of Idahoans, which demonstrate a plan with specific and measurable outcomes/goals that can be accomplished within the 18-month project cycle. The team must be multidisciplinary and include community and/or industry partnership.

“Every Idahoan is impacted by heat and wildfire smoke. Understanding who is at most risk and how they can mitigate the negative health impacts of such extremes is a topic of interest for both the university affiliates and the general public. The findings of this study will benefit everyone.”
