​​​​ICATCH grants provide both financial and technical support to grant recipients who are developing ​and implementing a program or project that improves child health in their community. Priority is given to applicants from low-income and low-middle-income countries. Funding is $2000 per year for 3 years. ICATCH grants emphasize:

  1. Partnerships with governmental and/or nongovernmental agencies or groups (such as public health centers, schools, faith-based groups or local businesses)

  2. Sustainability and growth of the program beyond the funding period

  3. Expansion of successful strategies to other communities or regions

The ICATCH 2020 Grant Cycle Call for Proposals is NOW CLOSED!

Please check in October for our next round of grants. Thanks!

The topics for the  2020 grant cycle were:

  1. Physical or Developmental Disabilities in Children
    Includes developmental delay, early childhood development, or physical disabilities which are congenital or acquired (e.g. blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy, impairment following conditions such as cerebral malaria or head trauma or seizure disorder, etc.)
    NOTE: We will not fund proposals that only carry out screening for disabilities; projects that include screening must also include treatment or therapy for the disability.
  2. Childhood or Adolescent Mental Health (preschool to age 21 years)
  3. Male Adolescent Health (boys up to age 21 years)
  4. Newborn Health (projects must focus on the newborn period; can follow-up infants up to 6 months of age)
    NOTE: We are not funding projects targeting only pregnant women, or infants older than 6 months of age.


Funding to winners to start: July, 2020
