Purpose

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.

There are also distinct funds available for pediatricians and residents to conduct community-based projects that address child poverty or promote early brain and child development.

Priority will be given to projects serving communities with the greatest demonstrated healthcare access needs and health disparities. Strong collaborative community partnerships and future sustainability of the project are encouraged.

Eligibility

A pediatrician or resident fellowship trainee must lead the project and be significantly involved in proposal development and project activities. Only pediatricians and resident fellowship trainees in the United States and its territories are eligible to apply. Applicants must be members of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
