PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION GRANTS
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.
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.
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.
