TREASURE COAST -

Forms and instructions for 2013 grant programs for the Florida chapter of the March of Dimes are available at marchofdimes.com/florida.

There are two application processes for the 2013 grant program, which support projects that safeguard babies' health.

For projects of $3,000 or less, applicants should use the community award application.

For projects on interconception and post-partum health, applicants should use the Florida Chapter grant application. Completed applications are due at noon on Aug. 31. Late applications will not be accepted.

"These grants are one way the March of Dimes pursues its mission to give every baby a healthy start," said Julie Samples, March of Dimes state program services chairwoman.

"We are grateful that our successful fundraising efforts, such as March for Babies, make it possible for us to support new initiatives for stronger, healthier babies in Florida."

The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Founded in 1938, the March of Dimes funds programs of research, community services, education and advocacy.
