In support of our mission to improve the health and well-being of everyone in North Carolina, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation supports opportunities that advance work in Healthy Food, Early Childhood, Oral Health, and Healthy Communities. Below is a list of current opportunities.
Access to Oral Health Services
As part of our commitment to increasing access to, and quality of, oral health care at mission-driven safety net providers, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation has an open funding opportunity focused on supporting safety net health care organizations to add or significantly enhance oral health services resulting in new and sustainable dental homes in dental shortage areas. This funding is expected to support capital and other startup costs for new or expanded dental clinics. Learn more.
