Round 3 of the Play, Live, Be Tobacco-Free Grant Program

Deadline September 30, 2010

In a continuing effort to keep tobacco industry products out of sport and recreation and through a grant provided by the Ministry of Health Promotion's Healthy Communities Fund, SPORT4ONTARIO, in collaboration with the Play, Live Be Tobacco-Free (PLBTF) Provincial Collaborative, is pleased to announce Round 3 of the Play, Live, Be Tobacco-Free Grant Program. This grant program provides the opportunity for organizations to apply for grants from $500 to $5,000.00, depending on the scope and reach of the organization, to develop and promote a Tobacco-Free Policy.
Tobacco-free sport and recreation means that everyone taking part in a sport or recreational activity does not use tobacco industry products. It means participants, spectators, coaches and leaders do not smoke, snuff, dip, or chew tobacco while engaged in the activities of your organization. Sport and recreation organizations play a vital role in the health and well-being of our communities.
Non-profit sport and recreation clubs, teams, leagues and organizations wishing to support and promote Tobacco-Free Policy and activities are invited to apply for Round 3 funding. Grants will be awarded based on meeting eligibility criteria and descriptions of how your organization will develop and implement a policy and include/endorse the message Play, Live, Be Tobacco-Free through a variety of educational and promotional activities and /or resources.
