March of Dimes Indiana Chapter announces the availability of 2015 Community Grants. The Indiana Chapter Community Grants Program is designed to invest in priority projects that further the March of Dimes mission, support campaign objectives, and further our strategic goal of promoting equity in birth outcomes. 

Priority will be given to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

• Are evidence-based;
• Include measurable outcomes;
• Promote equity in birth outcomes.

Projects may focus on consumers and/or health care providers. The March of Dimes does not fund billable health care provider services.
