Grants of up to $33,000 to Arkansas free clinics that are volunteer-based and offer a safety net to disadvantaged and primarily uninsured individuals, in order to help improve their capacity and services. Applicants must provide a variety of medical, dental, pharmacy, and/or behavioral health services.

The intention of the Program is to strengthen healthcare systems and services at the local level for Charitable Clinics, thereby increasing the number of Arkansans receiving health care services such as basic primary care, dental and behavioral health for free or at low cost to those persons unable to pay for medical care.

The focus of proposals should be to target the following primary needs of Charitable Clinics:

• Prescription assistance pharmaceutical program fees; purchase of stock medications
• Equipment and supplies for lab testing; costs of referral labs done at hospitals
• Diabetic testing equipment and supplies
• Health Education materials and supplies
• X-Ray equipment and supplies
• Medicaid application assistance
• Dental equipment and supplies
• Diagnostic tests or procedures
• Behavioral health counseling
• Maintenance and operations
• Computer equipment and/or software and training
• Health Information Technology and training
• Optometry Services
• Other services (example: translation, transportation, etc.)
