Round 35 Grant Round: Bloomberg Initiative To Reduce Tobacco Use Call for Proposals
Round 35 is an OPEN Grant Round, inviting applicants from low-, lower-middle-, and upper-middle-income countries to apply for grants. Before submitting a Project Idea, it is essential to read through the Call for Proposals and the guidance information provided.
Applicants from Africa are encouraged to submit a brief inquiry with their name, email address, and telephone number to AFRO-TFKGrants@tobaccofreekids.org.
For those interested in proposing short-term projects, up to 6 months in duration, that primarily focus on identifying, exposing, and countering tobacco industry activity undermining tobacco control measures, applying for a Tobacco Industry Interference Grant is recommended. These grants are supported by the Bloomberg Initiative under a separate grants program. For more information about Tobacco Industry Interference Grants, please visit https://exposetobacco.org/work-funded-by-stop/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For applicants looking to include countering tobacco industry interference within a longer-term, policy-focused project, please apply to Round 35 as indicated at the bottom of this page.
For those interested in proposing longer-term projects, up to 24 months in duration and $400,000 USD in funding, with a specific focus on tobacco cessation, including brief cessation advice, national quitlines, and/or mCessation, applying for a Cessation Grant is recommended. These grants are also supported by the Bloomberg Initiative under a separate grants program. For applicants interested in smaller scale tobacco cessation work, please consider applying to the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use Strategic and Open Rounds at www.tobaccocontrolgrants.org as per the above instructions.
The Bloomberg Initiative To Reduce Tobacco Use, funded by Michael R. Bloomberg through his foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and managed by Vital Strategies and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, provides more information about Cessation.
Round 35, taking place in February 2024, is part of a global initiative to reduce tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries. The initiative, launched in 2006 with funds from Michael R. Bloomberg, includes a competitively awarded grants program managed by Vital Strategies and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. In the first thirty-four rounds of the grants program, 852 grants were approved in 65 countries.
While applications are welcome from all low- and middle-income countries categorized by the World Bank, the Initiative prioritizes countries with the highest number of tobacco users. These countries include Bangladesh, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Ukraine, and Vietnam.
The grants program offers two rounds annually: the Open Grant Round (OGR) and the Strategic Grant Round (SGR). The Open Grant Round is open to applicants from any low or middle-income country, while the Strategic Grant Round is exclusively open to applicants from the ten priority countries mentioned above.
Governmental and non-governmental organizations based in eligible countries are eligible to apply for grants. Governmental organizations include national Ministries, state/provincial authorities, and city/municipal authorities, among others
