The South Dakota Tobacco Control Program (TCP) offers funding for organizations to provide tobacco prevention and control services in communities and schools.
The purpose of the Community/School Partnership grant program is to link school and community tobacco prevention and control efforts in order to achieve maximum impact. Programs should focus their efforts on supporting and implementing policy-based interventions that address one or more of the following goals:
- Prevent initial tobacco use among youth and young adults
- Promote quitting of all tobacco products among youth and adults
- Eliminate all types of exposure to tobacco use
- Identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities
among population groups. Priority populations include:
- Youth and young adults
- American Indians
- Pregnant women
- Medicaid clients
- Smokeless tobacco users
- Mental health and/or substance abuse patients
Partnerships are strongly encouraged to use grant funds to implement school-based tobacco-free buildings and grounds policies in their communities.
Community/School Partnership grants are awarded to local government and nonprofit community-based organizations, coalitions, and groups that support the mission of the SD-TCP.
Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Youth groups
- Post-secondary institutions
- Civic associations
- Service clubs
- Healthcare organizations
- Faith-based organizations
- Parent groups
