DDSDF grants are intended for: early intervention and prevention of oral disease; oral health education; adequate dental workforce; and access to dental care.

Grants generally range from $1,000 - $50,000 and are available for 1, 2 or 3-year periods.  Applications are accepted all year, and considered twice a year.  Deadlines for the two funding rounds are May 1 and December 1.
