Additional Information on Eligibility:
Eligible Applicants: (A) Emergency Grants.

In making emergency grant awards, the Secretary must also consider the LEA's total assessed value of real property that may be taxed for school purposes, its use of available bonding capacity, and the nature and severity of the school facility emergency. (B) Modernization Grants. To be eligible for a modernization grant, an LEA must be eligible for Impact Aid funding in general; be eligible for funding for heavily impacted LEAs under section 8003(b)(2) of the Act; enroll a high percentage (at least 40 percent) of federally connected children who reside on Indian lands or who have a parent on active duty in the U.S. uniformed services; have a school that enrolls a high percentage of one of these types of students; or be eligible for funding under section 8002 of the Act (payments for Federal property).

Applications are considered in four priority categories. Emergency grants are considered for the first and second priorities and Modernization grants are considered for the third and fourth priorities. Detailed information about the eligibility requirements for each priority can be found in 34 CFR 222.177 through 222.182.

Purpose of Program: The Impact Aid Discretionary Construction Program provides grants to eligible Impact Aid school districts to assist in addressing their school facility emergency and modernization needs. The eligible Impact Aid school districts have a limited ability to raise revenues for capital improvements because they have large areas of Federal land within their boundaries. As a result, these districts find it difficult to respond when their school facilities are in need of emergency repairs or modernization.

American Dental Association Foundation Invites Proposals for Childrenís Oral Health Programs

Deadline: July 9, 2004

The ADA Foundation

( http://www.ada.org/ada/prod/adaf/index.asp ), the charitable arm of the American Dental Association, has  established a permanent endowment fund dedicated to the  prevention of childhood cavities and oral health  maintenance for children. The Harris Fund will award competitive grants to applicants whose oral health  promotion programs are designed to improve and  maintain childrenís oral health through community  education programs.

The grant programís main objective is to help children whose socioeconomic status impacts their access to professional oral care and adversely affects their oral  health habits at home.

Proposals of up to $5,000 by community-based, not-for-profit, oral health promotion programs in the United States and its territories will be considered.

Examples of qualified oral health promotions include: dental health education conducted at schools, health fairs, and social agencies, via mobile dental clinics or  outreach programs; dental health education programs in  conjunction with preventive programs such as fluoride and  dental sealant application programs; oral health and  nutrition education materials designed for parents and/or  dental professionals; instruction in the proper use of  oral care products; development of public service  announcements (PSAs) to increase awareness of and  appreciation for proper childhood oral care.

See the ADA Foundation Web site for complete program  guidelines and application procedures.
