The ADA Foundation (<a href=""></a>), the charitable arm of the American Dental Association, has established a permanent endowment fund dedicated to the prevention of childhood cavities and oral health maintenance for children. The Harris Fund will award competitive grants to applicants whose oral health promotion programs are designed to improve and maintain children’s oral health through community education programs.

The grant program’s main objective is to help children whose socioeconomic status impacts their access to professional oral care and adversely affects their oral health habits at home.

Proposals of up to $5,000 by community-based, not-for-profit, oral health promotion programs in the United States and its territories will be considered.

Examples of qualified oral health promotions include: dental health education conducted at schools, health fairs, and social agencies, via mobile dental clinics or outreach programs; dental health education programs in conjunction with preventive programs such as fluoride and dental sealant application programs; oral health and nutrition education materials designed for parents and/or dental professionals; instruction in the proper use of oral care products; development of public service announcements (PSAs) to increase awareness of and appreciation for proper childhood oral care.

See the ADA Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
