1) Objective

The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use Grants Program is an important component of the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use. With funds from Michael R. Bloomberg, through his charitable foundation Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Grants Program is competitive and supports projects to develop and deliver high-impact evidence-based tobacco control interventions.

Proposals must focus primarily on identifying, exposing, and directly countering tobacco industry activity that undermines tobacco control measures. Projects must aim to fill an identified gap in country partners’ abilities to address tobacco industry issues and support a specific tobacco control priority.
Priority will be given to projects that address a specific tobacco industry issue or tactic, rather than tobacco industry interference generally. For example:

  • Tobacco industry interference in policy passage
  • Tobacco industry interference in policy implementation
  • Tobacco industry advertising, promotion and sponsorship
  • Tobacco industry introduction of newer nicotine products and so called “harm reduction” narratives
  • Tobacco industry allies and front groups
  • Tobacco industry environment, social and governance (ESG) strategies (including Corporate Social Responsibility)
  • FCTC Article 5.3, Code of Conduct, or Conflict of Interest policy

2) Eligibility

Governmental and non-governmental organizations based in eligible countries can apply for grants: Governmental organizations include, but are not limited to, national Ministries, state/provincial authorities and affiliate offices; Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with relevant advocacy experience aimed at changing or implementing policies; and Universities and independent policy institutes (‘think tanks’).

3) Location

The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco use Grants Program utilizes World Bank country income groups to establish eligibility to apply for a grant. Organizations from low- and middle-income countries are welcome to apply. This includes low-income, lower-middle-income, and upper-middle-income countries. Initiative places a priority on countries with the greatest number of tobacco users. These are: China, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Vietnam, Philippines, Brazil, Ukraine and Mexico.

4) Budget

Proposals can be submitted for grants up to $30,000 for around 6 months.

5) Application

The deadline for submission of Project Ideas is 12:00pm, US Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5 hours) on Thursday, 22 February 2024.
