In keeping with these definitions, the applicant organization (who may likely be a sponsoring facility, or qualifies as such) will administer the comprehensive oral health services within a SBHC. Applications failing to demonstrate such experience or capacity will not be considered. 2)As cited in Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 51a.3 (a), any public or private entity, including an Indian tribe or tribal organization (as those terms are defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b), is eligible to apply for this federal funding opportunity. If otherwise eligible, faith based and community organizations are eligible to apply for this federal funding opportunity. 3)Applicant, proposed partner and/or SBHC is not a current recipient of funding authorized under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act.
The purpose of the MCHB School-Based Comprehensive Oral Health Services (SBCOHS) grant program is to demonstrate the successful integration of comprehensive oral health care into an existing SBHC, focused primarily on early childhood and elementary/middle-school aged children of greatest need to assure the delivery of quality oral health education and preventive and restorative services. By augmenting an existing school-based health care delivery system with culturally competent, comprehensive, quality oral health care and education, the funded MCHB SBCOHS projects will demonstrate effective ways to strengthen existing school-based health center capacity to respond to the oral health needs of young people and increase access to dental health education and services for underserved, high-risk populations, including children and youth enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
