The California Department of Education will provide grants to help local educational agencies in California develop and implement effective tobacco prevention and education programs for students in grades 6-12. The Department of Education intends to balance the number of applications between urban and rural areas.

Projects should work to:

  • Reduce the prevalence of youth tobacco use and vaping
  • Increase collaboration with other agencies and individuals
  • Promote school connectedness as an integral part of programming
  • Adopt a holistic approach to youth tobacco-use prevention

Eligible applicants include public school districts, direct-funded charter schools, county offices of education (COE), and consortia that serve students in grades 6-12 within California.

Geographic coverage
Amount of funding

The number of grants awarded will depend on the number and quality of applications received, the number of students enrolled in districts and schools applying for funding, and the total amount of funding available. Awards are expected to be at least $50,000 per year for 3 years.

At least 15% of the funding awarded to each grantee must be allocated to health disparity populations.

Application process

Links to additional guidance, application instructions, and the online application portal are available on the program website.
