ClearWay Minnesota has released a new request for proposals to reduce tobacco harm; letters of intent due Oct. 26.
(Published Oct 17, 2012)
The mission of ClearWay Minnesota is to enhance life in Minnesota by reducing tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke through research, action, and collaboration. The organization is currently seeking proposals to implement local efforts to reduce the harm tobacco causes Minnesotans through coalition building, policy advocacy, and public education.
This funding opportunity is aimed at fostering bold approaches to tobacco control and encouraging innovative policy solutions. One goal of the first year of funding includes passing local policies that protect community members from secondhand smoke and decrease the use of tobacco.
Letters of intent are due by 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 26, and full applications are due by 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 14.
For applicants receiving a positive review of their letter of intent, an information session will be held via conference call on Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. Funding decisions will be announced in May 2013. Grants will begin July 1, 2013, after successful contract negotiations.
