American Academy of Pediatrics: CATCH Planning, Implementation, and Resident Grants

Deadline: July 31, 2018

Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) provides support to pediatricians interested in collaborating within their communities to advance the health of all children. Through CATCH, pediatricians and residents are empowered to identify promising practices that work in their individual communities.

There are two grant opportunities:

  • Planning and Implementation Grants: Implementation Grants will be awarded to pediatricians and fellowship trainees for the initial implementation or to pilot innovative, community‐based initiatives that increase children’s access to medical homes, immunization services, or specific health services not otherwise available. Planning grants will be awarded to individual pediatricians and fellowship trainees to plan 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 initiatives that increase children’s access to medical homes, immunization services, and specific health services not otherwise available. Projects should lead to programs that can be replicated in other communities. Resident CATCH projects must include planning activities or demonstrate completed planning activities, and may include implementation activities.

Amount: Planning and Implementation Grants: Up to $10,000; Resident Grants: Up to $2,000.

Eligibility: All pediatricians are eligible to apply regardless of employment setting or retirement status. National and Chapter American Academy of Pediatrics memberships must be current before grant funds can be disbursed.
