MCHB-Funded Projects

About the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB)

MCHB is a bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. MCHB's objective for oral health is to promote comprehensive, community-based oral health care services that combine public and private delivery systems, maximize the effectiveness of Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program oral health programs, and encourage the application of science to practice in reducing disease burden.

Oral health activities are supported by maternal and child health formula grants as well as by Special Projects of Regional and National Significance grants that support a broad range of innovative strategies. Several different project categories have been funded.

Oral Health Goals

  • Improve the health infrastructure and systems of care for all, especially for underserved, vulnerable, and special needs populations, to ensure access to comprehensive, high-quality oral health services.
  • Improve oral health status and outcomes (and their measurements) in seeking to eliminate health disparities.
  • Improve the quality of oral health services (preventive and curative) for all, especially for underserved, vulnerable, and special needs populations.
  • Promote oral health through building public-private partnerships, including strengthening the dental public health infrastructure.
