The Child Health Foundation (CHF) is currently accepting proposals from registered non-governmental organizations for its 2019 Innovative Small Grants Program to improve the health and well-being of new-born infants during their first month of life.
CHF will consider a range of technologies and approaches including both biomedical and social science projects that show promise, are innovative, and may have wide-spread application. Projects that involve only general medical care of children, but without innovative aspects, will not be considered.
This year, the focus will be directed toward improving the lives of infants during the first month of life. The first month is a time when the infant is most vulnerable, and CHF believes that small innovative projects can make a major impact on child health in diverse settings. The projects should be done within one year and should be able to document measurable results. The projects may address child health issues in a developing country or in the United States.
- The maximum budget for these projects is $5,000 over a one year period.
- Successful applications receive $4,000 when the project is scheduled to start and another $1,000 upon receipt of a final report.
- All Countries are eligible to apply.
- Organizations must be certified, that is, hold registration in the country of origin. And the foundation will ask for a credible reference. No other proposals will be considered.

Deadline: 31 May 2019
