AAP Community Access to Child Health (CATCH™) Program
The CATCH Program is seeking grant applications for innovative community-based projects to improve access to health care services for children who are most likely to experience barriers. Eligible initiatives reach out to the community at large.
$12,000 will be awarded to pediatricians and $3,000 to pediatric residents to work collaboratively with local community partners to ensure that all children have medical homes and other needed services to reach optimal health and well-being.
Applications are accepted for Planning Grants, Implementation Grants and Resident Grants from May to July and November to January. Visit www2.aap.org/catch/funding.htm
for more information.
To see what others are doing with their CATCH grants, visit the Community Pediatrics grants database at www2.aap.org/commpeds/grantsdatabase
where you can search by several major categories, including health topic and AAP grant program.
