Funding Opportunities │ The AIR Equity Initiative

The AIR Equity Initiative funds new or under-resourced research, evaluation, and technical assistance efforts to improve educational experiences, enhance justice in public safety and policing, strengthen economic mobility, and improve health outcomes for underserved communities. As part of our commitment to addressing the harmful effects of inequality, we support and foster partnerships with those who are directly affected by the inequities we seek to address and those who influence and drive decision-making. Our active and upcoming funding opportunities are here for your review.
