Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Planning and Implementation Grants

American Academy of Pediatrics
Jan 31, 2018

Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Planning and Implementation grants support pediatricians and fellowship trainees in the initial planning and/or pilot stage of implementing a community-based child health initiative. The program is designed to help increase children’s access to medical homes, immunization services, or specific health services not otherwise available.

In addition, the National Dairy Council has partnered with CATCH to fund 4 planning and implementation projects that focus on developing solutions for the health and well-being of children ages 2-18 that are impacted by food insecurity.

Priority will be given to projects serving communities with the greatest health disparities. Projects should lead to sustainable programs that can be replicated.

The CATCH program offers both planning and implementation grants. Consult the application guidelines to determine which grant best fits a particular project.


Pediatricians and fellowship trainees from the United States and its territories are eligible to apply. Applicants must be members of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Priority is given to pediatricians that have not previously received a CATCH grant or have not received a CATCH grant within the last 5 years.
