Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: the Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Invites Letters of Intent for Access to Care Grants
Deadline: August 15, 2011 (Letters of Intent)

Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: the Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry seeks to support and promote services, education, and research with potential to improve the oral health of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs.

HSHC Access to Care Grants are matching/challenge grants of up to $20,000 per year to support local service initiatives that provide dental care to underserved children. Special consideration will be given to programs that have demonstrated success and/or have potential for replication in other communities. Initiatives demonstrating collaboration with other institutions and organizations will be given priority consideration.

HSHC funds may be applied to cover costs of clinic supplies and instruments, patient and parent education materials, take-home supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.), education and/or outreach to recruit dentist participation in program activities, and other activities with clear, direct impact on child oral care.

Applicants must be U.S. or U.S. territory-based organizations providing care to children in the U.S. or a U.S. territory. Eligible applicant organizations include nonprofit 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(6) organizations; local health jurisdictions; county health departments; hospitals and clinics; state government agencies; colleges/schools of dentistry; colleges/schools of medicine (pediatric and family medicine departments only); national, state, and local dental societies; national, state, and local pediatricians’ groups; and state and local gynecological/obstetric groups.

Visit the Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Web site for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
