Delta Dental Foundation Calls for Applicants for Annual Community Mini-Grant Program
Date:8/1/2008

OKEMOS, Mich., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Community-based oral health programs in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana are encouraged to apply for grants up to $5,000 from the Delta Dental Foundation's third annual Community Mini-Grant Program. The announcement was made today by Nancy E. Hostetler, senior vice president of the Delta Dental Foundation.

Hostetler said a total of $70,000 will be awarded in competitive grants this winter to applicants whose programs emphasize oral health initiatives. Special consideration will be given to those applicants whose programs focus on improving the oral health of low-income children.

"We continue to see a vital need for dental treatment for underserved individuals, especially children, in the communities we serve and these grants are aimed specifically at tackling issues related to that problem," said Hostetler.

"Beyond treatment, we believe that education for children and caregivers is a critical component to making lifelong changes in improving a child's oral health."
