​​ICATCH Grants for Improving Child Health

CATCH 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:

  • Partnerships with governmental and/or nongovernmental agencies or groups (such as public health centers, schools, faith-based groups or local businesses)
  • Sustainability and growth of the program beyond the funding period
  • Expansion of successful strategies to other communities or regions

For this grant cycle, ICATCH will only accept applications from those whose work is in one of the following areas:

Maternal and infant health (infants under 1 year of age)

This is a broad category and includes any interventions, innovations, clinical care or educational or training programs that improve maternal and/or infant morbidity    and mortality.

Childhood injury prevention

This category includes programs that address the underlying environmental, behavioral or social causes of childhood injury, particularly (but not limited to) educational programs geared toward caregivers. Programs with specific interventions that can be taught, replicated and sustained are encouraged.

Gender-related health issues

  • Broadly, this category includes gender-specific healthcare (directed toward girls or boys), reproductive healthcare (for girls or boys), as well as health issues related to gender or sexual orientation.
  • Many health problems are influenced or caused by gender related issues. Projects that help raise awareness of these issues among health care workers, or community education projects that help encourage pediatric and adolescent patients to discuss and address gender related health issues are encouraged.
