Eligibility:
Must be a United States /U.S. Territory applicant/organization providing care to children in the U.S. or a U.S. Territory. 
 
Priority is given to projects with pediatric dentist involvement. If a pediatric dentist is not participating, a general dentist must be involved for funding consideration.

Purpose:
Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children (HSHC) is committed to supporting community-based initiatives providing Dental Homes to children whose families cannot afford dental care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a Dental Home as the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care, delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way. HSHC supports this goal through its Access to Care Grants targeting children up to age 18.
