Grants to USA nonprofits and public entities for programs that build capacity to reduce inequities related to tobacco use in Midwestern and Southern states. A brief proposal must be submitted before applying. Funding is intended to address inequities among lower-income, rural, and black residents of the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Proposals can focus on a single state, on multiple states, or the entire region.
Through this funding opportunity, RWJF seeks to support and engage black community members, persons of lower socioeconomic status, and rural residents in the South and Midwest in order to increase their ability to advocate for stronger, locally or regionally driven tobacco-control and prevention policies and practices.
Proposals can, but do not have to focus on all three populations. Proposals should state clearly which populations the applicants will focus on and why. Although projects do not have to focus on rural areas, it is anticipated that at least one project with a significant rural component will be funded. RWJF is interested in and encourages applications that include regranting to support community-based organizations or efforts.
Proposals should describe how a project will build capacity to advocate for stronger commercial tobacco-control prevention policies and practices within the geographic region and among the focus populations described below. Examples of advocacy activities that could be supported through this project include: policy analysis, strategic communications, coalition building, policymaker education, and informing regulatory implementation. Proposals do not have to describe the specific policies and practices the project will focus on, but should articulate the process applicants will use to identify specific policies and practices.
For examples of policies and practices that are likely to advance health equity, see: https://anr.rwjf.org/viewCfp.do?cfpId=1456&cfpOverviewId=#page=3
Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project.
