Building Capacity to Reduce Tobacco Inequities in the South and Midwest

Application Deadline:  August 29, 2019

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) knows that to successfully reduce tobacco-related disparities we need to empower leaders from those communities most harmed by tobacco. Tobacco use remains the number one cause of preventable deaths in the United States and disproportionately harms people of color, people with lower incomes, and people living in rural areas—especially in the South and Midwest.

To move the needle in reducing these inequities, RWJF will fund projects that support communities in 13 Southern and Midwestern states to strengthen capacity to advocate for stronger local and regional tobacco-related policies. We will fund up to $4 million for as many as six projects.

Join us on June 17 at 2:00 p.m. ET for an informational webinar to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
