PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Better health and wellness for folks living in our community is the mission of Delta Dental of Arizona, a not-for-profit dental insurance organization. It’s getting ready to give out hundreds of thousands of dollars to non-profits, and that’s Something Good!

Its charitable foundation is now accepting grant applications for 2024. This is a chance for nonprofits across the state — small and big — to apply for a grant. Applicants could be awarded anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000. And who can qualify for these grants?

Non-profits that work with underserved populations through oral health and nutritional programs are invited to apply. This means dental and non-dental programs like food banks, after-school and weekend food programs for children or senior delivery programs will be accepted. Nonprofits can submit applications from now until Thursday, Oct. 12. Applicants will learn in early 2024 if they will receive a grant.

Guidelines and application materials are available here.

In 2022, Delta Dental of Arizona’s foundation handed out grants to 33 non-profits across the state for a total of over $740,000.
