Dear Health Community Stakeholders and Partners,
The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living (TFL) has released its 2011-12 Request for Application (RFA) for Community Advocacy Grants (CAGs).
The RFA can be viewed at: http://www.tobaccofreeliving.org/home5/ or at www.lphi.org/tflgrant. Details on upcoming information sessions are below. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
The purpose of these grants is to foster community involvement in carrying out TFL’s goals of reducing exposure to secondhand smoke, preventing tobacco initiation by youth, promote tobacco cessation among youth and adults, and reducing tobacco-related health disparities.
TFL CAGs assist in the growth and development of statewide capacity building and mobilization efforts for tobacco prevention and control. It is through the statewide coordination of these strengthened efforts that the goal of prevention is met through policy change. The three areas that the RFA will focus on are youth, young adults (college/university), and priority populations.
Grantees must be one of the following:
The CAGs funding period will be from July 1, 2011 to June 15, 2012 (FY 11/12).
Benefits to the TFL Community Advocacy Grantees include:
