Grants of up to $20,000 and grants of up to $10,000 to USA and territories qualified IHEs for activities to adopt and implement no-smoking policies on campuses across the country. Funding is intended to support implementation efforts that include an element of student engagement and are supported by the faculty and administration. In addition to funding, grantees will receive technical assistance through learning communities, webinars, and one-on-one consultations throughout the project period.
The Truth Initiative Tobacco/Vape-Free College Program is offering grants of $20,000 to minority-serving institutions, community colleges and women’s colleges to support the adoption and implementation of a 100% tobacco/vape-free policy. For more information and a definition of Tobacco/Vape-Free Policy, see https://truthinitiative.org/sites/default/files/media/files/2020/03/Tobacco%20and%20Vape-Free%20College%20Program%20-%20Grant%20Guidelines%20and%20Application%20Instructions.pdf#page=16.
Colleges that were early adopters of 100% smoke or tobacco-free policies may not have included e-cigarettes since the epidemic hadn’t hit yet. To combat the vaping epidemic, Truth Initiative is offering grants of up to $10,000 to strengthen 100% smoke-free or tobacco-free policies by adding e-cigarettes.
The goal of the program is to adopt a college-wide policy by March 2022. Grant activities must engage and mobilize the student population and create support among faculty, staff and administration for the policy.
Colleges that currently do not have a 100% tobacco/vape-free policy may apply for up to $20,000 to adopt a policy.
Colleges that have less than a 100% tobacco/vape-free policy may apply for up to $20,000 to strengthen their policy. For example, if smoking or tobacco use is prohibited in buildings but permitted in designated areas on campus, they are eligible to apply for funds to strengthen their policy to prohibit tobacco use and vaping in all areas.
If the college currently has a 100% smoke-free or tobacco-free policy and they want to strengthen it to include e-cigarettes, they may apply for up to $10,000 to support the advocacy, adoption, and implementation of a 100% tobacco/vape-free policy.
Truth Initiative recognizes and honors the fact that tobacco may have a sacred cultural place in American Indian life. Many Native American tribes use tobacco for spiritual, ceremonial, and traditional healing purposes. Truth Initiative, therefore, distinguishes traditional, ceremonial and spiritual use of tobacco from its commercial use. Truth Initiative promotes tobacco control efforts that do not target traditional tobacco.
