Deadline Approaching for AAFP Constituent Chapter Grant Proposals

Matthew Neff

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Constituent Chapter Grant Program for 2002-2003 has received an additional $10,000 in funding for grant awards from the sole supporter, Aventis Pharmaceuticals, bringing the program total to $40,000 (a 33 percent increase). The funds will be awarded in seven to 14 grants ranging from $2,500 to $6,000. The deadline for chapter proposals is July 31. Proposals should focus on the development of programs and activities that help keep members informed about nonclinical factors that affect their practice environments, such as communication technology workshops, leadership training, contract evaluation and negotiation, and practice management workshops. Proposals must include an outline of the program or activity and an estimated budget for implementation. The Commission on Health Care Services will select grant recipients and announce the winners by August 30. An application form and additional submission information is available to chapter executives at www.aafp.org/chapter. Under the “Forms and Tools” section, click on “Grant Applications,” then select the link for “Constituent Chapter Grant Program (CCGP).” The program coordinator, Sherry Fernandez, can be contacted at 800-274-2237, ext. 4114.
