QAC Department of Health Seeking Applicants for Community Anti-Tobacco Mini-Grants

Anti Tobacco Mini Grants (1)

 Queen Anne’s County Department of Health has extended the deadline for the Community Anti-Tobacco Mini-Grants. Grant proposals are now due by October 23, 2020 at 4:00 pm.

Mini grants available on behalf of our Cigarette Restitution Fund. These grants are to be used to help educate the community on tobacco prevention and or cessation. These mini-grants can be awarded up to $1,000 each. 

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. Based on information from the American Cancer Society, more than 8,000 deaths each year are attributed to tobacco use. Despite these facts, young people continue to take up smoking at the rate of more than 2,800 plus per day. Please help us in trying to prevent youth from starting to smoke and to help others that currently smoke to quit. 

Our grantees are expected to use the funding for projects that will target youth and build upon one or more of the various Tobacco Awareness Campaigns that target our entire population.
