This month's featured funding opportunities are AAP Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Planning Funds and Resident Funds grants. This grant cycle includes a special call for projects that benefit American Indian/Alaska Native children and projects to improve access to immunizations for children who are most likely to experience barriers. Additional topics include medical home access, access to specific health services not otherwise available, and connecting uninsured/underinsured with available programs.

 

Grants of up to $12,000 will be awarded to pediatricians and $3,000 to pediatric residents to plan innovative community-based child health initiatives. Priority is given to projects that will be serving communities with the greatest health disparities. The pediatrician or pediatric resident grantee must lead the project and be involved in proposal development and project activities. Resident grants may include implementation activities. Family physicians serving Native American children may apply in partnership with a pediatrician.

 

The application deadline is July 29, 2011.
