Grants to USA agencies, non-profits, and others for programs that couple primary care with dental care for pregnant women and infants most at risk of oral disease. A technical assistance call will be held on December 11, 3:00 PM ET. Awardees will conduct statewide demonstration programs including education, preventive services, and restorative treatments.

This grant program is the second phase of the MCHB Perinatal and Infant Oral Health National Initiative. The goal of this grant program, as with this multi-phase initiative, is to reduce the prevalence of oral disease in both pregnant women and infants most at risk through improved access to quality oral health care.

By targeting pregnant women and infants, during times of increased health care access, the expected result is improved oral health and oral health care utilization of the mother and her child throughout their lifespan.

Ultimately, by linking the delivery of oral health with primary care, the overall well-being of pregnant women and infants will be improved.

The focus of the 2015 PIOHQI Expansion Grant Program is to make available and conduct targeted demonstrations for replication and expansion of quality oral health care (such as education, preventive services and restorative treatment) in health care delivery systems with statewide reach that serve pregnant women and infants most at ricks risk for oral disease.

These awardees, in collaboration with the Network partners, will work together with the PIOHQI Pilot grantees to develop, put into practice, and continuously evaluate strategies that successfully integrate quality oral health care into health care delivery systems with statewide reach that serve pregnant women and infants most at risk for disease.

At the end of this funding period, awardees will have defined and implemented evidence-based models used to successfully integrate quality oral health care into perinatal and infant primary health care delivery systems with statewide reach.

These models will: reduce prevalence of oral disease in pregnant women and infants, ultimately reducing ECC throughout early childhood; increase utilization of preventive dental care by pregnant women; establish a dental home for infants (by age one); and reduce dental expenditures. Lessons learned from implementing these state models will be used to develop the National Implementation Framework for Improved Perinatal and Infant Oral Health.

As a guide, this framework will support state stakeholders (i.e., government leaders, oral health professionals, community and state health program directors, and others) in their efforts to: (1) expand opportunities for access to direct oral health services; (2) increase delivery of best practices for oral health care, including oral health clinical competencies of primary care providers; (3) enhance statewide data sources, making available “real time” data with common oral health metrics; and (4) support sustainability, including state policy and legislation changes to ensure sufficient reimbursement.

Specific to sustainability after the period of Federal funding ends, awardees are expected to sustain key elements of their grant projects (e.g., strategies or services and interventions, which have been effective in increasing access to quality oral health care and improving the oral health status of the target populations).

Sustainability can be achieved in various ways, including both Federal and/or state funding support, private-public partnerships, self-generating revenue.
