The Academy is accepting submissions for its Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Implementation Funds and Resident Funds grants. Application deadline is Jan. 31.

Grants of up to $12,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis to pediatricians to implement or pilot innovative community-based child health initiatives that will ensure all children, especially underserved children, have medical homes and access to health care services. Priority is given to projects that will be serving communities with the greatest health disparities. A pediatrician must lead the project and be involved in proposal development and project activities.

Grants of up to $3,000 also will be awarded on a competitive basis for residents to plan community-based child health initiatives. Projects must include planning activities but also may include implementation activities if prior planning can be demonstrated.
