The Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Program is a national initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that supports pediatricians to collaborate within their communities to advance the health of all children. Through the CATCH Program, pediatricians and residents are empowered to identify promising practices that work in their individual communities.

In addition to our general call for proposals, CATCH is pleased to partner with the following entities to support pediatricians and pediatric residents to conduct community-based projects that advance child health and well-being:

Council on Community Pediatrics (COCP)
Council on Environmental Health (COEH)
Council on Injury, Violence and Poison Prevention (COIVPP)
Council on School Health (COSH)
Council on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (COQIPS)
Section on Pediatric Trainees (SOPT)
National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness (NCECHW)
Boulter CATCH Oral Health Endowment
National Dairy Council (NDC)

Their generous support will help sponsor grants that address topics that are of current interest/priority to their membership. Details about these special funding opportunities can be found in the respective planning/implementation and resident CFPs.
