NYUCD Receives Two Additional New York City
Council Grants Totaling $1.5 Million

The New York City Council, led by Speaker Gifford Miller, has awarded two new grants to NYUCD: a grant of $1.25 million for facilities renovations at the NYU Dental Clinics and a grant of $268,000 in support of the Smiling Faces, Going Places mobile dental care program. This is in addition to a City Council grant last year of $268,000 in program funds for the van and $1.75 million for the replacement and upgrading of clinical equipment. The new grants will further expand access to care for those in need both at the NYU Dental Clinics and in underserved areas throughout the city.

In expressing thanks to Speaker Miller and the New York City Council, Dean Alfano said, "Because of Speaker Millerís leadership and the City Councilís advocacy and support, NYUCD is strengthened in its quest to preserve quality, affordable care for poor and low-income New Yorkers. We are extremely grateful to the Speaker and his members for their commitment to lifting some of the many burdens shouldered by New Yorkers in need."
