American Academy of Pediatrics: CATCH Planning, Implementation, and Resident GrantsDeadline: January 31, 2018
Community Access to Child Health (CATCH), a program of the American Academy of Pediatrics, provides support to pediatricians interested in collaborating within their communities so that all children have access to the health services they need.
There are two grant opportunities:
- Planning and Implementation Grants: Grants will be awarded to pediatricians and fellowship trainees to plan or for the initial implementation (pilot) of innovative, community-based initiatives that increase children’s access to medical homes, immunization services, or specific health services not otherwise available.
- Resident Grants: Grants will be provided to pediatric residents to plan and/or implement community-based child health initiatives. The purpose is to enable residents to work with their community to address the unmet needs of children. Projects should lead to programs that can be replicated in other communities. Projects must include planning activities or demonstrate completed planning activities, and may include implementation activities.
- Planning and Implementation: Up to $10,000
- Resident: Up to $2,000
Eligibility: General pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, pediatric surgical subspecialists, and fellowship trainees from the United States and its territories are eligible. National and Chapter American Academy of Pediatrics memberships must be current before grant funds can be disbursed.
