2017 DTA Foundation Grant Process is Now Open

January 19, 2017

The Dental Trade Alliance Foundation is now accepting preliminary proposal summaries for their 2017 grant programs!

The DTA Foundation will award nine $25,000 grants in 2017, one of which will be a joint DTA Foundation/Dental Lifeline Network grant.

If your organization has an innovative pilot project designed to improve oral health care for the growing number of Americans in need, or has an innovative pilot project specifically related to providing access to comprehensive dentistry for individuals with disabilities, who are elderly, or medically compromised, please review the 2017 Preliminary Proposal Guidelines and Criteria.

Each applicant must demonstrate that their innovative pilot project will not only improve access to oral care in their immediate area, but also have the potential to grow and be implemented in other areas of the country.

New for 2017: In order to be invited to complete a full application for a DTA Foundation grant, your organization will be required to submit an electronic 2017 Preliminary Proposal Summary Form. The DTA Foundation will not accept grant applications from any organizations that have not been invited to move on in the review process. Preliminary proposal summaries are a requirement for all organizations. No exceptions will be made.

Preliminary proposal summaries must be received no later than February 15, 2016.

Visit our website for more information and FAQs.

The DTA Foundation has awarded just over $1.7 million dollars in grant funding to 83 innovative projects designed to increase access to oral health care since the inception of the grant program in 2002. Past recipients have used DTA Foundation seed money for innovative programs designed to improve the access to and productivity of the oral health care system, leveraging more than $5 million in additional funding for these promising projects.

In 2013, the DTA Foundation and the Dental Lifeline Network joined forces to create a grant program to specifically support projects that provide access to comprehensive dentistry for society’s most vulnerable individuals who are elderly, medically compromised, or with special needs and have no other way to get help.

Grant Opportunity FW: Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program

October 25, 2016

This FY 2017 ANEW Program FOA seeks to expand upon the efforts that began in FY 2015 under the Advanced Nursing Education (ANE) Program to increase academic-practice partnerships around the country.

Apply for this Grant on grants.gov

The ANEW Program supports innovative academic-practice partnerships to prepare primary care advanced practice registered nursing students to practice in rural and underserved settings through academic and clinical training. Closing date for applications is January 25, 2017.

The partnerships support traineeships as well as infrastructure funds to schools of nursing and their practice partners who deliver longitudinal primary care clinical training experiences with rural and/or underserved populations for selected advanced nursing education students in primary care nurse practitioner (NP), primary care clinical nurse specialist (CNS), and/or nurse-midwife (NMW) programs, and facilitate program graduates’ employment in those settings.

Eligible applicants include entities that provide registered nurses (RN) with training that leads to master’s and/or doctoral degrees that prepare nurses to serve as primary care nurse practitioners, primary care clinical nurse specialists, and nurse-midwives.

Applicants may include accredited schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities authorized by the Secretary of HHS that confer degrees to RNs for primary care NP, primary care CNS, or nurse-midwife education. Federally recognized Indian Tribal Government and Native American Organizations as well as faith-based or community-based organizations may apply if they are otherwise eligible.

Current ANE awardees from FY 2015 and FY 2016 are eligible to apply for the ANEW Program funding opportunity, but their applications must include a project different from their currently funded ANE project.

For profit entities are not eligible under this FOA.

FY 2017 Nurse Faculty Loan Program Open!

September 19, 2016

Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)

HRSA-17-066 Now Open on Grants.Gov!

Apply for the HRSA-17-066 Nurse Faculty Loan Program – we’re accepting applications through November 14, 2016.

The purpose of NFLP is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty to facilitate education of the nurses needed to address the nursing workforce shortage. The NFLP seeks to achieve this purpose by providing funding to schools of nursing to support the establishment and operation of a NFLP loan fund.

Participating schools of nursing make loans from the fund to assist registered nurses in completing their graduate education to become qualified nurse faculty. The program offers partial loan forgiveness for borrowers that graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed period of time. The loan recipients may cancel 85 percent of the loan over four years in return for serving full time as faculty in any accredited school of nursing.

Eligible entities are accredited collegiate schools of nursing and other qualified academic programs offering eligible advanced master’s and/or doctoral degree nursing education programs that will prepare students to teach.

NFLP funds are awarded to institutions.
