Community Response Fund grants are generally smaller, one-time awards that address access to oral health care. The focus is to support programs, activities and events that:

• Respond to an urgent issue that impacts access to clinical care.
• Provide short term access to needed care for the underserved.
• Sustain organizations through short term challenges.
