TSET Healthy Incentive Grants - Schools

Brightening the Future of Oklahoma's Children

Healthy behaviors established during childhood carry through to adulthood.  To promote and support those healthy behaviors, the TSET Healthy Incentive program offers grants to school districts and school sites that adopt policy and implement best and promising practices in tobacco-free environments, nutrition, physical activity and employee wellness. Policy requirements for these grants help to create a learning environment that establishes and supports healthy behaviors for students, teachers and staff.

The grant year begins July 1, 2021 and ends June 30, 2022. Funds for the TSET Healthy Incentive Program for Schools are limited and applications will be accepted during two set periods. Potential awardees will be presented to the TSET Board of Directors at the November 2021 and March 2022 meetings.

Application periods for both School Districts & School Sites for FY22:

September 1, 2021 - October 1, 2021

January 3, 2022 - February 3, 2022
