Harris Fund now accepting applications

The ADA Foundation Samuel Harris Fund is accepting applications for the 2010-11 Samuel Harris Fund for Children's Dental Health Grants Program.

For more than 10 years, the Harris Fund, named for noted pediatric dentist and philanthropist Dr. Samuel Harris, who died in 2003, has bestowed grants on organizations dedicated to fighting children's dental disease.

The program is open to all nonprofit organizations that sponsor education programs for mothers and caregivers to reduce the incidence of early childhood caries. Competitive grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded solely for prenatal and postnatal oral health instruction for mothers/caregivers.
