Relief Grant Program
ADA Foundation Relief Grant assistance has helped many dentists and their families by providing financial assistance when accidental injury, advanced age, physically debilitating illness or a medical condition prevents them from being gainfully employed, resulting in the inability to be wholly self-sustaining.

Emergency Disaster Grant Program
Purpose: The purpose of the ADA Foundation Emergency Disaster Grant Program is to provide a small measure of immediate financial assistance to eligible dentists (as defined in these guidelines) who are victims of a disaster. A disaster is defined as a "sudden occurrence which inflicts widespread catastrophic damage to a large geographic area and/or which generally affects a large number of individuals." Disasters can be both natural and caused by human conduct. Examples include, but are not necessarily limited to: civil disorders (excluding acts of war), explosions, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, tidal waves, wildfires, hurricanes, ice storms, and similar natural disasters.
Eligibility Requirements: Any dentist who is a victim of a disaster may apply to the ADA Foundation for a grant.
