Grant Amount: Approximately $9,000,000 is expected to be available.
This announcement solicits applications for the Part F Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) to expand HIV services and education and training. These services target low-income, underserved people living with HIV/AIDS. The primary purpose of the DRP is to improve access to oral health care services for patients with HIV and to train dental and hygiene students and dental residents to deliver HIV/AIDS dental care. The DRP accomplishes this by defraying a portion of unreimbursed dental care costs for people living with HIV/AIDs incurred by accredited dental or dental hygiene education programs recognized by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.
