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 optimal health and well-being and address unmet child health needs.

In addition, the National Dairy Council has partnered with CATCH to fund 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 program website to determine which grant best fits a particular project.


General pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, pediatric surgical subspecialists, and fellowship trainees from the United States and its territories are eligible. Applicants must be members of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
