Truth Initiative is accepting grant applications from public community colleges across the nation to support efforts to advocate for, adopt, and implement a 100% smoke and tobacco-free policy. Truth Initiative, a national public health organization dedicated to reducing tobacco use, has already teamed up with 54 community colleges through the Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Community College Grant Initiative. To be eligible for a $7,500 grant, applicants must submit a proposal by Friday, Sep 30th. Awardees will also receive technical assistance. Eligible applicants include public community colleges that have not adopted or passed a 100% smoke-free or 100% tobacco-free policy.  Grant materials are posted on the Truth Initiative website at http://truthinitiative.org/news/helping-community-colleges-kick-their-tobacco-free-campus-efforts-gear.  For more information, please email communitycollege@truthinitiative.org or call Kristen Tertzakian or Alexandra Parks at 202-454-5555.
