Funding

MeHI provides grants, incentives and subsidies to healthcare organizations, providers and other parties that meet the applicable eligibility criteria.

In line with our mission, these funding options focus on advancing the adoption, effective use and development of Health IT in Massachusetts. Funding capital is provided through the eHealth Institute Fund, the 2014 Economic Development bill, grants from the Federal government and other sources.

To apply for a grant, an eligible party must respond to the applicable Request for Proposal (RFP), which requires writing a proposal for the use of the funds within the scope of the RFP and to be submitted by the deadline specified in the RFP. If selected, the grantee will engage in the contract process with MeHI's parent organization, Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.

To receive incentives, applicants must demonstrate eligibility through an application process, which varies depending on the requirements of our incentive programs.

How to Apply for Funding 

MeHI's issues Grant Solicitation and Procurement RFPs, which are listed on MassTech's Procurement page when they are available:
