OKLAHOMA CITY (May 5, 2022) – At their quarterly board meeting on May 5, the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust Board of Directors approved $112,000 in grants to improve health in five Oklahoma communities.

“Local infrastructure and policies have a tremendous influence on our health as a state,” said Julie Bisbee, TSET executive director. “TSET is proud to offer incentive grants to support communities that are working hard to provide an environment that promotes healthy living.”

TSET Healthy Community Incentive Grants approved on Thursday were:




Town of Stratford



Town of Westville



Town of Luther



Town of Wright City



City of Lindsay






TSET Healthy Community Incentive Grants are awarded to communities that have implemented health policies and practices encouraging tobacco-free, vape-free environments, access to healthy and nutritious foods and opportunities for physical activity.

Grant funds may be used for a variety of projects that promote healthy and active living to include walking trails, farmers market venues, splash pads, basketball courts and outdoor physical equipment. Incentive grant amounts vary based on community population and the types of health-promoting strategies implemented. Grants are often leveraged to attract additional partners.
