The Community Access To Child Health (CATCH) program is a national initiative of the AAP that supports pediatric health care professionals to collaborate within their communities to plan and/or implement projects that advance the health of all children. The CATCH Call for Proposals is open through January 24, 2022 at 11:59 pm CT. Pediatric health care professionals and pediatric residents in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canadian AAP chapters, with innovative ideas to plan or implement initiatives that address critical child health issues in their local communities may apply for $10,000 and $2,000, respectively.

The Resident Call for Proposals guidelines include targeted funding opportunities on more than 10 topics including oral health, community pediatrics, environmental health, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, emergency medicine, school health, obesity prevention, and child abuse/neglect.
