  • Print

November 16, 2012 The primary focus of the TUPE program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that enable them to be tobacco-free. The secondary focus is to develop California's next generation of tobacco-free advocates who represent a cross-section of California's priority populations. Comprehensive evidenced-based tobacco-use prevention, youth development, intervention, and cessation programs are an important part of this effort. LEAs, including charter schools, that have a tobacco-free policy certified by the California Department of Education, are eligible to apply for TUPE funds. A competitive application process for grades 6 through 12 is available.

Deadline: Applications due December 7, 2012
Eligibility: Local Educational Agencies, including charter schools, that serve students in grades six through twelve, and who are certified tobacco-free as of July 1, 2012
Award: Up to $4,500
