State Oral Health Workforce

The FY2016 grant competition is now closed.  Awards will be made no later than September 1, 2016.


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.
