Increase Access to Health Care for Underserved Children

6/23/2005:   Did you know the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) provides grants to pediatricians to develop innovative, community-based initiatives that increase children's access to medical homes or to specific health services not otherwise available?

Through July 29, AAP is accepting applications for its 2006 Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Planning Funds program, which provides grants in amounts from $2,500 to $10,000. Grant funds are awarded to planning project activities that lead to sustainable, community-based child health initiatives that increase access to care, especially for underserved children, and address health disparities among children.

Go to www.aap.org/catch/planninggrants.htm to submit a grant application online and to read descriptions of previously awarded grants. The CATCH Planning Funds program is administered by the AAP CATCH Program and is supported by a grant from Wyeth, with additional support from the AAP Friends of Children Fund and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Foundation.
