HSHC will award single-year grants of up to $20,000 in support of community-based initiatives that provide dental care to underserved children. Priority will be given to initiatives that support dental visits at age one; emphasize care for pediatric patients from birth to age 5; provide care to special-needs patients; address the needs of specific underserved demographic groups; and/or incorporate systemic health (i.e., diabetes, cancer, etc.).
Funds may be applied to cover the cost of clinic supplies and instruments, patient/parent education materials, take-home supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.), education and/or outreach to recruit dentists to the program, and/or other activities with clear, direct impact on pediatric oral health care.
