CATCH Planning, Implementation, and Resident Grants

THE CATCH CALL FOR PROPOSALS IS NOW CLOSED

Applicants will receive notice of funding decisions November 15, 2014, or sooner.
The next Call for Proposals opens November 3, 2014; submissions will be due January 30, 2015.

ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE
A network of pediatricians and pediatric residents is available to help you with everything from proposal development to project implementation. Submit your ideas to your Chapter Facilitators and Resident Liaisons — access to rosters in "Quick Links."

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 and access to health care services not otherwise available in their community. Priority is given to projects that will be serving communities with the greatest health disparities.

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 and available insurance programs.

RESIDENT GRANTS
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.

Eligibility requirement - postgraduate status as of July 31, 2014:

  • PL-1 or PL-2
  • PL-3 or below in medicine-pediatrics residency
  • PL-3 if planning a chief resident year in 4th year
  • PL-4 or below in triple-board residency
  • PL-3 residents may apply as co-applicants
