Take Action on Tobacco Use Grant Program applications are now being accepted!

Application deadline is February 15, 2015.  

New Brunswick enjoys the support of many groups and organizations that share the Wellness Strategy’s vision of a healthy New Brunswick where, together, we learn, work, and live in a culture of wellbeing. These organizations participate actively in promoting wellness.

NB’s Wellness Strategy is designed to accelerate progress on wellness in New Brunswick (www.gnb.ca/wellness).  It supports actions in schools, communities, homes and workplaces.  Actions relate to partnerships and collaboration, building capacity for community development, promoting healthy lifestyles, developing and supporting healthy policies, and wellness-related surveillance, evaluation and research.

Many communities, organizations and individuals are already working hard to make a difference, to make New Brunswick stronger and healthier. The Take Action on Tobacco Use Grant Program supports community-led initiatives to increase tobacco-free living, strengthen community action with an emphasis on youth-led initiatives, partnerships and comprehensive actions. 

The Department of Healthy and Inclusive Communities is now accepting applications for the Take Action on Tobacco Use Grant Program until funds are expended. Eligible applicants can receive up to $5000 in grant funding.

To be considered for funding your initiative must contribute to the three goals of the Take Action on Tobacco Use Grant Program: 

  • Comprehensive approach that builds capacity and sustains efforts to increase tobacco-free living in communities, organizations, schools, and/or workplaces.
  • Youth engagement through youth-led initiatives that include partnerships to increase tobacco free living; in which youth plan, lead and participate in activities that are meaningful to them.
  • Community-led initiatives that include partnerships to increase tobacco-free living and contribute to sustained activity.  

The Department of Healthy and Inclusive Communities encourages applicants to use a mental fitness approach during program planning, implementation and delivery to enhance participant engagement and increase the quality and success of the initiative. Does the program recognize the skills and strengths of participants? Does the program offer choice and a voice to participants? Does the program encourage positive relationships? Please see the Application Guide for suggestions on ways to use a mental fitness approach.
