The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation has created a time-limited special initiative to actively solicit proposals for quickly deployable fundable solutions that can immediately provide relief for issues created by the current Covid-19 pandemic. The foundation is looking to jumpstart projects that can realistically deploy within 30 days. Anticipated funding is in the $50K-$100K range.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is sponsoring the Emergency Response for the Healthcare System Innovation Challenge, which poses the question, "Can you create a digital tool supporting the healthcare system (including but not limited to providers, government, and public health and community organizations) during a large-scale health crisis (pandemic, natural disaster, or other public health emergency)?" Awards of $1,000 to semi-finalists and up to $25,000 to finalists.
