Delta Dental Announced Grant for Dental Projects 

Delta Dental Foundation Special Grant Cycle for Dental Health Projects

Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation has started accepting applications from organizations that provide oral health services and education.

The organization accepts grant applications to improve the dental health system and boost ongoing projects. Through this grant cycle, the organization also focuses on reducing gum and teeth-related diseases.

The organization has allocated a total grant of $500,000. The grant’s money will improve dental health in eligible organizations.

They have prepared criteria where eligible organizations can apply for the grant of up to $40,000.

Those organizations must follow the Delta Dental Foundation’s application process. The final date for applying for the grant is August 20.

What are the Criteria for Receiving the Grant?

The organization has prepared criteria for an eligible organization to apply for a grant of up to $40,000, as mentioned above. This funding will be distributed amongst the organizations for their new or existing programs that provide oral health education.

Education is essential to cure gum and teeth diseases. For that reason, Delta Dental Foundation has decided to provide the grant money to organizations that provide primary education to the people.

Many people can avoid developing oral health issues with proper information and knowledge.

What are the Criteria for Receiving the Grant

As per a recent study, most organizations are seeking funds to support such programs. However, they cannot provide their services per their requirements due to fewer resources and findings.

Such organizations should approach Delta Dental Foundation and others willing to support their noble cause through financial aid.

Besides oral health education, organizations providing dental health-related services such as dental implants, other expensive dental treatments, and preventive oral care should apply for the grant.

These are the criteria the Delta Dental Foundation set for the organizations willing to receive the grant money of $40,000.

To distribute the allotted funds to the needy organization, Delta Dental Foundation will first review the organizations’ applications. Then, the core committee will finalize whom to provide the funds to support their services.

This initiative will help the underserved, low-income, and uninsured citizens who can’t afford to insure their lives.

They aim to provide affordable dental services to every Arkansan. Many people suffer from different types of oral health issues just because of the lack of proper knowledge.

For that reason, the organization has decided to improve oral health education through eligible organizations.

Many institutions and non-profit organizations are active in providing oral health-related information. These organizations provide the best knowledge and spread information to minority communities.

“We fund community-focused, oral health projects that make a meaningful difference in the health and well-being of Arkansans,” said Chrissy Chatham, executive director of the Foundation. “Many people suffer from debilitating tooth decay or gum disease.

We hope our funding will increase knowledge and access to care while providing life-changing relief and improved quality of life for uninsured Arkansans.”

What’s the Procedure for applying for the Grant?

The procedure is simple. An eligible organization can apply for amounts ranging from $2,500 to $40,000. Applicants must provide a detailed plan for how the grant money will be used in their application.

Applicants must be an Arkansas-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, charitable dental treatment facility, government agency, or school.

The grant money can be used for program-specific administrative or staffing costs, dental clinic treatments, oral health education, capital needs, and other operational expenses related to dental programs.

Who will be awarded first?

The core committee will review all applications received by August 20, the final deadline. The committee will focus on low-cost clinics.

Low-cost clinics provide affordable services to needy people, so the organization has decided to select such clinics first.

The grant will then be awarded to organizations providing oral health education to the underserved community. Oral health education is crucial, so the committee will first award such organizations.

Organizations that serve rural areas will receive priority, but not all such organizations will be awarded first. Minorities living in rural areas can’t get proper treatment and education, so the funding will be distributed among such organizations.

The funding will also be distributed to community partnership programs, which are designed for uninsured people with low incomes. The grant’s money will help such individuals through community partnership programs within the state.

What’s the results date?

The officials say the awarded grants will be declared in early January 2024.
