AAFP Accepting Applications From Free Clinics Grant Program

The American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation works to advance the values of family medicine by promoting humanitarian, educational, and scientific initiatives that improve the health of all people. To that end, the academy is accepting applications for its Family Medicine Cares USA program.

Launched in 2011, this program is designed to help new and existing free clinics care for the uninsured by providing grants of up to $10,000 for the purchase of needed items such as exam tables, EHR systems, and medical equipment. Family Medicine Cares USA also gives AAFP members, residents, and students the opportunity to volunteer their time and talents.

To be eligible, applicants must be a new clinic nearing completion of the Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic development process and have an AAFP member in a leadership role. Primary consideration will be given to clinics with an AAFP member serving as medical director and those who have family medicine residents and/or medical students involved as volunteers.

See the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation website for complete program guidelines, a fact sheet, and application instructions.

Deadline: July 15, 2019
