Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Implementation Funds Program
The Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Implementation Funds program supports pediatricians in the initial and/or pilot stage of implementing a community-based child health initiative. The program is designed to help increase children’s access to a medical home or specific health services not otherwise available.
Priority will be given to projects serving communities with the greatest demonstrated health care access needs and health disparities. Strong collaborative community partnerships and future sustainability of the project are encouraged.
