Proposals Invited for National Tobacco Policy Change Program
Deadline: September 1, 2004

Tobacco Policy Change: A Collaborative for Healthier Communities and States, a national initiative supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (<a href=""></a>), provides resources and technical assistance for local, regional, and state-based organizations and tribal groups interested in implementing effective tobacco-prevention and -cessation policy initiatives.

The goals of the program are to: 1) maintain tobacco policy gains and momentum in communities, states, and regions; and 2) strengthen and sustain the state and national tobacco policy change infrastructure (policy research, advocacy, and communications). The program seeks to engage diverse organizations and professionals in sustainable tobacco-control activities to decrease the prevalence of tobacco use in the United States.

Approximately $12 million is available over three years to support professional staff and other infrastructure, public education, advocacy, communications, and outreach for tobacco control. Grants will be one year in duration and will vary in range from $50,000 to $150,000, depending on the strength of the proposal and the matching funds raised by the applicant.

To be eligible, an applicant organization must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or be a tribal group recognized by municipal, state, or federal government entities; have demonstrated success in policy advocacy and grassroots organizing; and provide proof of hard cash matching-fund commitments for grants over $50,000.

Applications will only be accepted online. See the RWJF Web site for complete program information, application procedures, and details on informational Web casts.
