Grant funding

Funding priorities

The Foundation seeks proposals for projects that:

  • increase access to dental care for large numbers of underserved and high risk populations – such as children, pregnant women, older adults, Latinos and Native Americans;
  • improve oral health through prevention and early intervention;
  • are financially sustainable over time and don’t require continued grant support; and
  • seek funds from multiple sources.
