Established as part of a settlement agreement between forty-six state attorneys general and a group of tobacco companies, the American Legacy Foundation seeks to reduce tobacco usage in the United States. Twice a year, the Foundation supports a limited number of grants under its Small Innovative Grants Program. Through this program, Legacy supports projects that advance creative, promising solutions based on sound principles of tobacco control to remedy the harm caused by tobacco use in America. The program is designed to seed new projects or enable an organization to pilot a new idea or approach. Applications must address one or both of Legacy's goals: 1) arming all young people with the knowledge and tools to reject tobacco, and 2) eliminating disparities in access to tobacco prevention and cessation services.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, December 16, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include a description of the proposed project, how it represents innovative or new tobacco prevention or cessation efforts, its likelihood for sustainability after the grant period, and how the project might be replicated.

Amount: Up to $100,000 for the first year. Upon invitation, grantees may apply for a second year of funding for up to 50 percent of the amount awarded in the first year. Grantees must provide a 1:1 cash match for second-year funding. A match is encouraged but not required for the first year of funding.
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, December 16, 2005 (letter of intent)
