We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

  • Problem Recognition – Recognition of a specific problem, challenge, or opportunity, in relation to the provision of humanitarian aid. These grants are open to any applicant.
  • Advancing Seed-funded Projects – These grants are for applicants who have received seed-funding from the HIF and are looking for next-stage of funding to further develop their innovation.
  • Project Diffusion – These grants are for previous Development or Implementation grantees, now requiring grant funding for wider adoption outside the original setting.
