Pennsylvania Oral Health Coalition Announces Community Water Fluoridation Funding Opportunity

Calling all Pennsylvania water systems! PCOH has additional funds available and is requesting proposals for Community Water Fluoridation (CWF) Equipment Grants. This grant seeks to issue funds to those public water systems wishing to initiate, update or expand the practice of community water fluoridation. This funding round gives priority to community water systems that are initiating a fluoridation program. Systems may be at any stage in the initiation process. Systems which have previously received equipment grants from PCOH may apply for equipment updates and replacements, although first-time applicants will receive priority consideration. The maximum request per water system currently fluoridating or wishing to initiate fluoridating may not exceed $50,000.

Applications are due December 31 by 5 pm. Please share with your local water system or municipality.
