TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The state prison for female inmates in Kansas has received a $25,000 grant for its denture manufacturing lab from a nonprofit organization.

The Kansas Department of Corrections announced Thursday that the Topeka Correctional Facility had received the grant from the Delta Dental of Kansas Foundation.

The agency says the prison's dental lab will use the money buy equipment and supplies that will increase its productivity and improve its training of inmates in denture-making.

Dentures made in the lab go to health clinics that serve needy Kansans.

The foundation was set up in 2003 by Delta Dental of Kansas, the largest administrator of dental benefits in the state.
