Email your application for the CHCF Health Innovation Fund to InnovationFund@chcf.org. Only complete applications will be reviewed. Your information will be kept confidential.
You will be informed within four to six weeks as to whether further review will be undertaken and what additional materials may be required. The full review and approval process can take three to six months, as all PRIs will undergo extensive due diligence and must be approved by the CHCF board of directors.
Remember that PRIs are financial obligations that require full compliance and repayment in accordance with the agreed-upon terms and conditions. The decision to approve and fund a PRI is solely within the discretion of the foundation. This information does not constitute a promise to fund.
