Competitive Grantee Programs
Community-based competitive grants complement and work with tobacco control programs and local coalitions supported by City and County Health Departments. Through these local grassroots efforts, the California Tobacco Control Program directs resources to reduce tobacco-related health disparities. Efforts to reduce tobacco-related health disparities include advocacy and educational projects working with communities that experience high rates of tobacco use and culturally and language-specific educational materials. These Competitive Grantees are doing some of the most progressive, innovative, and effective tobacco control work in the United States.
Funded agencies include community-based organizations, voluntary health organizations, health clinics, ethnic organizations, alcohol and drug centers, labor organizations, youth organizations, and universities.
