The declaration of a state of emergency in Louisiana means that the LDA Foundation and ADA Foundation will be accepting disaster grant applications from dentists who suffered property damage in the recent storms/floods.

ADA Foundation Emergency Disaster Grant Program info and grant application can be found at http://www.adafoundation.org/en/how-to-apply/charitable-assistance/.

The LDA Foundation Disaster Grant application and info can be found at: http://www.ladental.org/lda/dental-resources/lda-foundation.

The LDA Foundation offers disaster grants (up to $1,500 each) for Louisiana dentists who are victims of a disaster. A disaster shall be defined in the same manner as by the ADA Foundation for similar grants, and can be both natural and caused by human conduct. Examples include, but are not necessarily limited to: civil disorders (excluding acts of war), explosions, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, tidal waves, forest fires and hurricanes.

Any Louisiana dentist who is a victim of a disaster may apply for a grant, provided that:

  1. He or she suffered property damages as a result of the disaster.
  2. A "disaster" has been declared by a governmental agency, or has been determined by the Board in accordance with the definition provided above.
  3. Application is made using the LDA Disaster Grant form during the period of time in which a State of Emergency related to that disaster is declared to be in effect by the State of Louisiana, or within 3 months of the occurrence of the disaster, whichever occurs at the later point in time.
  4. The dentist has not applied for an ADA Disaster Grant for Dentists in the previous 10 days.

 If you have any additional questions, contact the LDA office and ask for Tisha White, (800) 388-6642 or (225) 926-1986.
