Dental Facility Expansion Grant


Key state investments in expanding services for the uninsured in dental services, which are seeing some of the largest service gaps, will increase the free and charitable clinic sector’s role in reducing avoidable hospital rates within their communities. Funding additional dental services for the uninsured impacts two key components of an individual’s health. First, to improve self-worth and confidence in finding employment. Second, to provide more complicated medical care, such as surgery, where a dental visit must be done in advance in order to safely undergo anesthesia.

The 2023-2024 Notification of Funding Availability for the Dental Facility Expansion Grant is now live and can be found by clicking here.
