South Carolina grants
Helping moms and babies in South Carolina
The March of Dimes South Carolina Chapter provides grant funding to programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This includes investing in research and education that will help moms before and during their pregnancies. It also includes working with local medical groups and organizations to improve prenatal care and newborn screening.
We are currently accepting applications for 2015 community grants. The Chapter will award more than $300,000 in community grant funds to organizations in South Carolina to address unmet maternal and child health needs.
To be considered for grant funding, projects must be evidence-based, and may focus on consumers and/or health care providers. Funding priorities for 2015 include:
(1) Providing smoking cessation education and/or services to pregnant women or women of reproductive age.
(2) Implementing community programs that aim to reduce disparities in preterm birth.
(3) Improving maternal health during the interconception period by enhancing services for women
with conditions that increase risk of premature birth.
Organizations interested in applying should request an application by emailing SCGrants@marchofdimes.org. Applications are due by 3:00 pm on September 5, 2014. Late applications will not be accepted. For more information, contact the March of Dimes South Carolina Chapter at 803-403-8522.
