PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION GRANTS

Through a partnership with the AAP Friends of Children Fund, funding is available for projects that address child poverty or promote early childhood brain development.
All pediatricians are eligible to apply regardless of employment setting or retirement status.

All initiatives should incorporate screening for or connecting children to medical homes, immunization services, and available insurance programs.
