They are available to researchers for a concept study with the potential to improve cardiovascular health in the short term. 

Vanguard Grants encourage research and innovation in clinical or public health interventions and cardiovascular health practices. They are designed to facilitate feasibility testing that may lead to larger, more rigorous testing in the future. The projects will provide tangible outcomes with the potential to improve cardiovascular health.
