Grants of typically up to $5,000 to Colorado nonprofits, schools, government agencies, dental component societies, and oral health clinics to support projects that focus on improving the oral health of state residents, with a focus on underserved populations.

For the purpose of these grants, an underserved population is defined as a group of individuals who have no, or inadequate, access to health services due to limited financial resources, lack of health insurance, geographic isolation, or language/cultural barriers.

Funding will be provided for one or more of the following types of programs:

1. Public Health: Improve the oral health of individuals or communities by addressing a problem and implementing a solution.

2. Public Oral Health Education: Educate individuals or communities by disseminating information that promotes good oral health and will prevent oral disease.

3. Institutional Advancement: Enhancement of a facility or organization that will improve the delivery of oral health care through equipment and technology. This is typically a one-time project that will have positive and long-term effects on providing oral health services.
