Community Grants seek to expand access to oral health care in underserved areas by funding services that provide preventative services or treatment for individuals of all ages, ethnicities, gender, and socio-economic status in Arkansas.
Mini Grants seek to support innovative, solution-based projects that make an impact in the field of oral health. Our intent is to directly impact communities through providing access to funding for organizations that may not meet the requirements of our Community Grants program.
Additionally, Super Smiles at School, our school-based mini grants program, seeks to improve access to oral health care for Pre-K through 12 th grade students. Grant requirements are the same as the mini grants and is only available to schools, school districts, and early childhood centers.
The Foundation encourages Arkansas based nonprofit organizations (501(c)(3)), faith-based, schools-based, and governmental agencies to apply. We cannot award grants to individuals. Only one proposal per organization per year will be considered.
Grants typically not funded include requests for:
Grant applications will be judged based on innovativeness of the proposed project, its potential impact on the oral health of Arkansans and the subjective analysis of the Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation’s staff, grant review committee, and Board of Directors. The Foundation’s funding decisions are final and shall not be subject to appeal.
