Subject: Health, Community Development, Child/Youth Welfare
Deadline: Jan. 29, 2016

Up to $10,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis to individual pediatricians and fellowship trainees to plan innovative community-based child health initiatives that will ensure all children have medical homes, are properly immunized, and have access to health care services not otherwise available in their community.

  • All pediatricians are eligible to apply regardless of employment setting or retirement status.
  • Outreach must be to the community at large, not to practice or clinic patients only.
  • All initiatives should incorporate screening for or connecting children to medical homes, immunization services, and available insurance programs.

Up to $2,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis for pediatric residents to plan and/or implement community-based child health initiatives. Projects must include planning activities or demonstrate completed planning activities, and may include implementation activities.

The AAP Section on Obesity has partnered with CATCH in the funding of Resident Grants whose primary topic is overweight and obesity, nutrition, or physical activity. The mission of the Section is to improve the health and well-being of children and families by reducing the prevalence of childhood obesity and promoting healthy active living. These grants are part of the general call for proposals and therefore must follow the same application and reporting procedures and meet the same eligibility and selection criteria. Funding for these obesity-specific grants is made possible through the support of the AAP Friends of Children Fund."
