Grants to Mississippi nonprofit organizations, coalitions, local government agencies, schools, and municipalities for projects to improve health in eligible regions. Funding is intended for local programming, awareness, communications, advocacy and policy, and cessation activities related to tobacco usage. For a list of target areas and counties, see:
The Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition program is comprised of community-based coalitions that address preventing the initiation of tobacco use among youth, reducing exposure to secondhand smoke, promoting tobacco cessation services, and eliminating tobacco-related disparities.
The MSDH Office of Tobacco Control is requesting proposals from qualified organizations for the development and implementation of the Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition program in targeted areas. It is the intent of the OTC to fund a single, discrete, local entity in the targeted areas to build the capacity of the state to implement tobacco control activities. The applicant should be recognized as a local community-based organization in the area to be served. Applicants can apply for a maximum of three areas within the state of Mississippi.
The organization must submit a disclosure of current or past affiliations or contractual relationships with tobacco companies, owners, affiliates, subsidiaries, holding companies, or companies involved in any way with the production, processing, distribution, promotion, sale, or use of tobacco. The successful applicant will be required to not participate in a relationship with tobacco companies during the contract term with MSDH.
