Health Tech Alley, a non-profit organization and MD Innovation Center (MIC) resident company has received a Sprint Challenge Grant from the U.S Economic Development Administration. The nationwide grant is designed to help address pandemic resilience and create economic, health and safety solutions through innovation and technology. Only 1 in 5 applicants were awarded a grant in this highly competitive program.

With the Sprint Challenge Grant, Health Tech Alley will focus on addressing community needs and working with local organizations to develop innovative solutions that will enhance health equality. Their initiative, titled “Catalyzing Advances in Technology for Community Health” or “CATCH”, seeks to close the gap between health tech entrepreneurs and the communities they are trying to serve.
