Grant Opportunities for Improving Child Health
Recent CDC data shows declining vaccination rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to combat this trend, the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Maternal & Child Health has created a P4 Challenge to encourage innovative solutions to increasing well-child visits in a primary care setting. Applicants can apply for Phase 1 by March 15, 2021 to be one of 50 applicants to receive $10,000 to deploy their proposed approach in Phase 2.
Don’t forget that CPP also has a 2nd Dose Grant Programwhere members can earn an educational grant up to $1,000 to examine 2nd dose completion rates for vaccines that require more than one dose to complete the series, implement an intervention in the office to help improve these rates, and share best practices with other CPP members.
