American Legacy Foundation Announces Changes to Small Grants Programs

Deadline: July 1, 2005 (Letters of Intent)

The American Legacy Foundation ("Legacy") ( <a href=""></a> ), a nonprofit organization created as a result of the settlement of the multi-state lawsuit against tobacco companies, works to reduce youth tobacco use, reduce exposure to second-hand smoke, increase successful smoking cessation rates, and reduce disparities in access to prevention and cessation services and in exposure to secondhand smoke on behalf of disadvantaged populations.

Legacy has announced that, beginning April 4, 2005, it will institute new application procedures for its Small Innovative Grants Program (SIG). Under the new process, the foundation will no longer accept applications on a rolling basis. Instead, there will be two application cycles per year with deadlines. All applicants will be required to submit a Letter of Intent by July 1, 2005,
for the first cycle. Upon approval of the letter of intent, Legacy will invite the selected applicants to submit a full proposal in early fall 2005. The next application cycle will occur in winter 2006, and future cycles will occur every six months thereafter.

Legacy will post the new Letter of Intent guidelines on its Web site by May 15, 2005, and will provide full proposal guidelines to organizations that the foundation invites to apply based on LOIs it receives. The guidelines for the full proposal are expected to closely resemble the current SIG guidelines but may include some changes.
