  • Increasing access to care for low-income families, especially those with children
  • Increasing access to care for elderly residents of Illinois
  • Assistance in procurement of dental supplies or dental equipment for dental providers servicing low-income areas of Illinois
  • Support of oral health education programs, especially in low-income designated schools
  • Support of emergency dental care for people who are disadvantaged with no access to care

Priority is given to projects that have measurable improvement goals, show strong community support, and are innovative in nature.
