The purpose of the Grants to States to Support Oral Health Workforce Activities Program is to help states develop and implement innovative programs to address their specific state oral health workforce needs in designated Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas. The program also supports states' innovative oral health service delivery models that increase access to high quality oral health services for underserved populations.


Eligible applicants include only governor-designated, state government entities. In addition to the 50 U.S. states, eligible applicants also include the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau. States are encouraged to work with Tribal entities to facilitate greater consultation and coordination between State and Tribal governments.
