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.
The Chapter is awarding more than $300,000 in community grant funds to organizations in South Carolina to address unmet maternal and child health needs.
Approved grant projects are evidence-based and 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.
We will be posting our 2015 grant recipients soon!
