American Academy of Pediatrics: Community Access to Child HealthDeadline: July 31, 2014
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 to plan innovative community-based child health initiatives that will ensure all children have medical homes and access to health care services not otherwise available in their community. Priority is given to projects that will be serving communities with the greatest health disparities. Outreach must be to the community at large, not to practice or clinic patients only, and all initiatives should incorporate screening for or connecting children to medical homes and available insurance programs.
- Resident Grants: Grants will be provided to pediatric residents to plan and/or implement community-based child health initiatives. 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: All pediatricians are eligible to apply regardless of employment setting or retirement status. For resident grants, applicants must have post-graduate status as of July 31, 2014.
