Apply For Grants

Do you provide dental care to children whose families cannot afford it? If yes, apply for an AAPD Foundation grant.

Selected applicants can receive one-year grants of up to $20,000, supporting community-based initiatives in the U.S. that provide dental care and ultimately serve as a Dental Home to underserved/limited access children.

The Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Access to Care Grant. All applications must be submitted by 4:30 CDT on October 1, 2021 to be considered for funding.
