The American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation advances the values of Family Medicine by promoting humanitarian, educational, and scientific initiatives that improve the health of people and communities. The Foundation advances those values through Family Medicine Cares USA grants by supporting free health clinics that provide a base of care infused with Family Medicine.

Applicants for a Family Medicine Cares USA grant must be a new clinic nearing completion of the Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic development process, have an AAFP member in a leadership role within the clinic, and meet specified criteria as stated in the Grant Guidelines and Requirements.
Amount: Grants are available up to $25,000 and vary based upon approved needs, number of applicants, and funds available.
Eligibility: Grant applications are accepted from clinics who have an AAFP member in an active leadership role within the organization and meet the specified criteria as stated in the Grant Guidelines and Requirements. Priority will be given to clinics with an AAFP member serving as medical director and to those who have Family Medicine residents and/or medical students involved as volunteers.
