About the BI Grants Program

The BI Grants Program is an important component of the Bloomberg Initiative.

With funds from Michael R. Bloomberg, the Grants Program is competitive and supports projects to develop and deliver high-impact evidence-based tobacco control interventions.

Two rounds of grants are awarded annually.  Applications are welcome from all low-income,  lower-middle-income, and upper-middle-income countries. The BI places a priority on countries with the highest prevalence of tobacco usage.

Approximately two-thirds of the world’s tobacco users live in fourteen countries:


China Brazil Ukraine
India Mexico Philippines
Indonesia Turkey Thailand
Russia Pakistan Vietnam
Bangladesh Egypt
