Tackling Tobacco Grants Program

Purpose

Our Tackling Tobacco Grants Program provides financial support to organisations to address smoking, to create sustainable changes that support clients to quit and to de-normalise smoking in the community. 

Why

We recognise that to create change, resourcing is vital, this includes financial resources. Investing to support staff and clients is key to long term success.

  • Tackling Tobacco in Community Service Organisations

    Cancer Council NSW is awarding Tackling Tobacco project grants to NSW not-for-profit community service organisations that are selected to participate in the Tackling Tobacco program. This grant can be used to support activities within the Tackling Tobacco program framework.

    Grant Details

    Cancer Council NSW will fund a limited number of services across NSW to implement Tackling Tobacco projects between July 2017 to April 2018.

    The grant is valued up to $3,000 (ex GST) to support the implementation of project activities.

    An expression of interest must be completed to apply for a grant. 

    Express your interest here or via the form below.  

    What will be required in the expression of interest form?

    The expression of interest form will ask a series of questions about the organisation’s current policies, practices and culture around smoking. This will help the organisation determine what changes to make in the Tackling Tobacco project, and to act as a baseline measure of organisational change.

    The expression of interest form will take approximately 20 – 30 minutes to complete. 

    How will decisions be made about which project to fund?

    Applications will be assessed in line with set selection criteria of feasibility of actions in the project plan to be achieved within the project timeline and budget, commitment of service leadership and management to supporting the implementation of the project, quality of the proposed activities in line with good practice and sustainability of the activities beyond the project.

    What level of reporting will be required of grant recipients?

    The primary reporting requirement for funded projects will be completion of a Tackling Tobacco post-project audit and reporting template. The template includes some narrative responses to describe what activities were undertaken and lessons learnt. An example of this template is available from the Tackling Tobacco team.

  • Tackling Tobacco in NSW Aboriginal Communities Initiative

    The Tackling Tobacco program in NSW Aboriginal Communities initiative aims to reduce smoking related harm among Aboriginal communities in NSW by increasing the capacity of Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and Aboriginal primary care services to address smoking within their services and to provide their clients with support to stop smoking. To do so, Cancer Council NSW will be implementing a grants program to award Tackling Tobacco project grants to NSW ACCHSs to support organisational changes in policy and practice in line with The ATRAC Framework: A Strategic Framework for Aboriginal Tobacco Resistance and Control in NSW.

    Grant Details

    The Tackling Tobacco in NSW Aboriginal Communities initiative will fund eight services to implement Tackling Tobacco projects. The initial funding round will be for projects to be implemented between August 2016 to March 2017.

    Full grant application details will be available at cancercouncil.com.au/tacklingtobacco from 1st July 2016. Grant applications will close at 5.00 pm on Sunday 31 July 2016.

    Cancer Council NSW is committed to continued funding for projects in Aboriginal communities under the initiative over the next three years through an annual grants round. Aboriginal health services that apply in the current 2016-17 round would be eligible to apply again in the following grant rounds regardless of whether they were successful or not.

    What will be required in the grant application?

    The grant application requires completion of the Cancer Council NSW’s Aboriginal Community Initiative Application Form. If successful, services will work with Cancer Council NSW staff to develop a project plan using the ATRAC Yarning Tool.

    What will the grant provide?

    The grant is up to $7,500 (ex GST) to support implementation of project activities. In addition, free Tackling Tobacco training will be provided to each service. Grant funds cannot be used to purchase and supply Nicotine Replacement Therapy but may be used to develop a sustainable system to supply Nicotine Replacement Therapy to your community and staff.

    What training will be provided?

    Cancer Council NSW will provide free Tackling Tobacco training to the eight funded services. Tackling Tobacco training covers evidence based smoking cessation support with a focus on brief interventions. Training is provided either via a one-day on-site workshop or via an e-learning program. For evaluation purposes, services will be randomly allocated to the format of the training.

    How will decisions be made about which project to fund?

    Applications will be assessed in line with set selection criteria of feasibility of actions in the project plan to be achieved within the project timeline and budget, commitment of service leadership and management to supporting the implementation of the project, quality of the proposed activities in line with good practice and sustainability of the activities beyond the project.

    What level of reporting will be required of grant recipients?

    The primary reporting requirement for funded projects will be completion of a Tackling Tobacco post-project audit and reporting template. The template includes some narrative responses to describe what activities were undertaken and lessons learning. An example of this template is available from the Tackling Tobacco team.
