Dental Trade Alliance Foundation announces call for proposals

April 7, 2010
Four $25,000 grants will be awarded in 2010.

ARLINGTON, Virginia--The Dental Trade Alliance Foundation is accepting proposals for its 2010 grant program.

The DTAF funds early-stage innovative programs designed to increase the effectiveness of the oral health-care system by encouraging changes in overall consumer behavior, improving access for underserved populations, and by enhancing the efficiency of the system.

The four organizations that best address the mission of the foundation will each be awarded $25,000. Applications are welcome from--but not limited to--for-profit organizations, dental organizations, dental schools, universities, government and/or community based nonprofit groups for programs located in the United States and its territories.

The DTAF Program Committee will take the lead in the evaluation of submitted requests for funding. The DTAF may seek guidance in its evaluation of programs from the Dental Trade Alliance Board and collaboration with the Santa Fe Group.

The DTAF's priority is to award grants to projects that can leverage additional funding and expansion in other geographic areas.

Programs that are solely local in scope and do not appear to be reproducible nationally or over a greater population, thus limited to attracting additional outside funding for future years, will be considered but may be outside the scope of current funding parameters.

All proposals must be received no later than May 28, 2010.
