Applications Invited for Samuel Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health Grant Program
Deadline: July 10, 2006

Established by the ADA Foundation (<a href=""></a>), the Samuel Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health is a permanent endowment dedicated to the prevention of childhood cavities and oral health maintenance for children. The Harris Fund will award competitive grants of up to $5,000 each to applicants whose oral health promotion programs are designed to improve and maintain children’s oral health through community education programs. In 2007, a total of $210,000 will be available for the program.

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

Examples of qualified oral health promotions include the following: 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; and development of public service announcements to increase awareness of and appreciation for proper childhood oral care.

Proposals will be considered from community-based, not-for-profit, oral health promotion programs in the United States and its territories.

Complete program guidelines are available at the ADA Foundation Web site.
