The Texas School Safety Center and the Texas Department of State Health Services have provided funding in the form of $500 mini-grants for groups participating in the Say What! Youth Movement to assist them in their tobacco prevention efforts in their community or school. The project must be youth-initiated and youth-led; however youth must be working with at least one adult supervisor or sponsor.
Funding may be used for any upcoming Say What! event that occurs between October 1 and July 1 of the funding cycle. Groups are limited to five mini-grants per year, but are encouraged to partner with other local youth groups to make their resources stretch! Funds may not be used to purchase equipment (cameras, laptops, software, printers, etc), to pay adult sponsors for their time or to attend a TxSSC event.
