Call for Proposals for Bloomberg Initiative’s Tobacco Control Grants

The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use Grants Program is seeking proposals on projects to reduce tobacco use in low and middle income countries. The grants program is managed by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

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.

Applicants must be recognized legal entities capable of entering into contractual arrangements, receiving foreign funds and assuming legal and financial obligations.
NGO applicants cannot be the recipients of financial support from any tobacco product manufacturer or the parent, subsidiary or affiliate of a tobacco product manufacturer.
While applications are welcome from all low- and middle-income countries (as categorized by  the World Bank), the Initiative places a priority on countries with the greatest number of tobacco users.

Approximately two-thirds of the world’s tobacco users live in fifteen countries: China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, Pakistan, Egypt, Ukraine, Philippines,  Thailand, Vietnam and Poland.Proposals can be submitted for grants from US$50,000 up to US$500,000 per year.  Shortterm, one-year or two-year project proposals will be considered.
The deadline for submission of Round 11 Project Ideas is 15:00 hours, US Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5 hours) on Monday, 23 January 2012.
