Grants of up to $30,000 to New Mexico Native American tribes, nations, pueblos, and Native-serving nonprofits for tobacco-use prevention programs. Applications are invited for tobacco-use prevention and cessation programs that educate about the harmful effects of commercial tobacco while recognizing the ceremonial significance of tobacco.
Recognizing that each tribal community has individual needs, commercial tobacco prevention and cessation programs may be developed to uniquely address tobacco use and prevention, so long as they address the following goals:
- To promote cessation and prevention of commercial tobacco abuse in Native communities, with a special emphasis on Native youth; and
- To promote cultural awareness of the Native traditional and ceremonial use of tobacco as a means to strengthen cultural identity and resistance to commercial tobacco.
For both established and emerging tobacco cessation and prevention programs, the Department will utilize a competitive grant process; awarding funding to applicant programs that:
1) Best demonstrate a thorough understanding of the population to be served and their need for commercial tobacco prevention and cessation services;
2) Demonstrate an organized plan to implement a tobacco prevention and/or cessation program that utilizes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs and best meets the needs of the tribal community served;
3) Demonstrate a reasonable budget with sufficient justification of costs;
4) Demonstrate a favorable record of performance implementing commercial tobacco control programs and/or behavioral health programs; and
5) Provide a shared interest in the proposed program through supplemental financial support and/or in-kind contributions.
The Department has earmarked $40,000 of the available funds for emerging tobacco cessation and prevention programs supporting tribal communities. Emerging programs are defined as commercial tobacco cessation and prevention programs that have been established for less than 12 months or will be developed if funding is made available to the program.
