The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supports states in their efforts to reduce dental disease and improve oral health through identified effective interventions. Cooperative agreements range from $230,000 to $310,000 per year and are renewable through fiscal year 2017. The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to assist state health departments in building and/or maintaining effective public health capacity through collective impact, which is the commitment of a group of people from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific societal problem.

The following 21 states have been awarded funding under the State Oral Disease Prevention Program Cooperative Agreement (DP1307) through August 2018:
