Grants and in-kind grants to Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions for programs and projects that aim to increase access to, and the quality of, oral health care. The funding source most often awards grants to oral health programs that are established. If not established, they should be well planned and have other funders committed before applying.

Awards may take the form of financial, technical, or human resources, or some combination of the three. Award objectives will concentrate on supporting the following types of oral health initiatives:

- Educational programs enhancing the awareness of good oral health, with a particular focus on children, the elderly, the indigent, or other populations with identified oral health needs
- Oral health care programs that are preventive in nature and are aimed at decreasing the incidence, prevalence, and severity of dental disease
- Dental clinics or centers established as a 501(c)(3) or Federally Qualified Health Center working to make oral health care more accessible and affordable to people in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Most typically, this takes the form of helping with the costs of equipment and dental supplies.
- The education of dental health professionals through scholarships and the continuing education of dental health professionals through financial support, particularly to enhance the availability and retention of such dental health professionals in the states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont
- Research efforts that will improve oral health by enhancing the art and science of dentistry, address an oral health disease or issue impacting one or more of our states, or that will lay a sound groundwork for oral health initiatives
- Improvement of the dental health workforce through scholarship and loan repayment programs

Contributions generally shall be awarded in the form of grants for:
1. Charitable programs to extend the benefits of dentistry to indigents and groups found to be dentally deprived
2. Educational programs for the advancement of dentistry and oral health
3. Programs designed to promote the oral health of the public
4. Dental research projects promising to lead to improving the quality of dental care delivered

Estimated Size of Grant:

Applications of $1,000 or less or applications of over $1,000 are accepted. Grants of more than $5,000 are less typical than those most often awarded by the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation prefers to make contributions based on a one-year commitment. However, in certain circumstances the Foundation may commit to make contributions for a period of years.

Typically, grants are awarded for one year. Applications for additional years must be submitted annually.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Northeast Delta Dental Foundation contributions, grants, and scholarship funding are awarded to organizations that:
- Have nonprofit 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) status or are governmental or academic institutions
- Do not discriminate by race, sex, religion, color, creed, age, national origin, or any other protected class
- Are involved in projects or activities that address one or more of the stated objectives of Northeast Delta Dental Foundation’s funding guidelines

Only applications requesting funds related to oral health will be considered.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications of over $1,000 will be referred to the Foundation Board of Directors by the Foundation Advisory Committee with their recommendations. Currently, the Foundation Board of Directors meets twice annually. The deadline for applying is approximately six weeks before a Board meeting, but applicants are encouraged to submit their applications even further in advance in consideration of the high volume of administrative work that reviewing applications requires.

Important dates:
- The submission deadline for Foundation grant applications is August 9, 2019.
- Those applications will be reviewed and presented at the September board meeting.
- Final grant decisions will not be released until after the September 13, 2019 board meeting.

All applications are reviewed by the Foundation Advisory Committee. Applications of $1,000 or less will be considered throughout the year and may be approved by that committee.

First-time applicants may contact Northeast Delta Dental with questions before submitting an application, but please only do so after a thorough review of the guidelines provided to all applicants.

Please do not contact Northeast Delta Dental about working with you to establish an oral health program on the basis of which you will apply for funds. Regrettably, while Northeast Delta Dental would be happy to help you, it does not have the staffing resources to work with you to set up your oral health program.
