American Academy of Pediatrics invites applications for children’s community-based health initiatives

The American Academy of Pediatrics aims to advance optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

To that end, AAP invites applications for its CATCH Planning, Implementation, and Resident Grants program, which will provide grants of up to $10,000 to pediatric residents to support innovative community-based child health initiatives that are focused on building strong community partnerships, serve those who are underserved/experience health disparities, provide access to services that lead to optimal child health and well-being, have measurable outcomes, and have plans for sustainability.

The CATCH Call for Proposals and corresponding applications includes three types of grants (planning, implementation, and resident) based on the eligibility guidelines (current level of training/practice) and the developmental stage for the community-based project for which applicants are applying.

Applicants must be a general pediatrician, pediatric medical subspecialist, pediatric surgical subspecialist, or a fellowship trainee from the United States, one of its territories, or Canada. Grant recipients must have a current national or chapter AAP membership before grant funds can be disbursed.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the American Academy of Pediatrics website.

Deadline: January 23, 2023
