Here are answers to questions about the application process for tobacco-control grants.

Where should I submit forms and documents?

Forms and documents can be sent via e-mail to grants@tobaccofreekids.org.

When are the Interim and Final Reports due?

You can find the due date for your Interim Report on the first page of your grant agreement. In general, it is due halfway through your grant period.

The Final Report is due within 30 days of the end of your grant period.

What is Grant Negotiation?

Once the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) has made a preliminary decision to fund your project proposal, your award is subject to a negotiation process. This negotiation is conducted by representatives of CTFK either via e-mail or through an in-person visit to your organization. To maximize the effectiveness and outcome of your project, we will work with you to develop a mutually acceptable project plan and budget.

How long does it take to do the Grant Negotiation?

If the grant negotiation process is conducted in-person, it will last approximately two days. It is an opportunity for TFK representatives to meet members of the project team and learn more about your organization.

Will I receive any information prior to the Grant Negotiation?

Before any site visit or e-mail exchange, you will receive a detailed analysis of your project proposal with recommendations to increase its potential effectiveness.

Why do applicants need to fill out an Organizational Form?

TFK is required by the U.S. government to conduct terrorist screenings of all organizations that receive funding. The Organizational Form includes all of the information we need to conduct the background screening.

What is the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use?

The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, funded by philanthropist and former New York City mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, is a $125 million initiative to combat tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries, where more than two-thirds of the world's smokers live.
