About the grant
Truth Initiative will award approximately six grants of up to $2,000 each to engage youth and young adults (ages 15-24) to educate local businesses about the importance of smoke-free air and encourage voluntary adoption of smoke-free policies by businesses and public spaces. Youth-serving nonprofits and government entities (e.g., health departments, high schools, colleges) located in Tennessee are eligible to apply.
The goals of the grant program are to:
- Engage, mobilize and educate youth and young adults on the importance of smoke-free environments and how to create these voluntary environments in their community
- Assist at least one business or public space to adopt a voluntary comprehensive smoke-free policy
