Tobacco Prevention Grants (2021) - VFHY
Tobacco Prevention Grants (2021)

Check back soon! Request for proposals announced in Fall 2020

Each year, our classroom-based prevention programs reach about 40,000 children statewide in public schools, preschools, houses of faith, community centers, and after-school programs. Our grants provide $2,412,177 in funding and support about 200 positions a year across Virginia.

When applying for funding, organizations developed their grant applications by choosing programs of their choice selected from VFHY’s Compendium of Tobacco-Use Prevention Programs for Youth. This Compendium contains programs that address issues relative to tobacco use prevention, including primary tobacco use prevention education, tobacco cessation, early tobacco intervention and reduction, advocacy, youth empowerment and social skills building. Many of these evidence-based programs are recognized as model, promising, or effective tobacco prevention programs. At the same time, the range of programs found in the Compendium allows grantees to choose a program that best fits their communities.

Check back in Fall 2020 for more information about applying for our next round of Tobacco Prevention grant awards. In the meantime, send an email to our public affairs manager to sign up for our email alerts and stay up to date with what VFHY is working on in your community.
