Tobacco-Use Prevention Education (TUPE) funds support health education efforts aimed at the prevention and reduction of tobacco use by youth. TUPE in grades six through twelve is funded through a competitive application process. Funding consideration to local educational agencies is based on projects that propose to implement research-validated prevention programs for the general student population, provide youth development activities for both general and priority populations, and provide intervention and cessation services to students currently using tobacco.
Eligibility: Local educational agencies must be certified tobacco-free by July 1, 2013. Funding is available to districts, charter schools, consortium leads, and county offices of education that serve students in grades six through twelve.
