OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 26, 2024) – The Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) Board of Directors on Thursday awarded grants totaling $68,000 to three cities to make improvements to local parks.

The cities of Spencer, Stilwell and Tuttle will receive a TSET Healthy Incentive Grant for Communities. The funds will help pay for new playground equipment or renovations at city parks.

“Parks that offer safe and appealing playground equipment for kids and features that encourage physical activity for people of all ages help improve health and quality of life,” said TSET Executive Director Julie Bisbee. “TSET is proud to support these and other Oklahoma communities that strive to promote health and wellness for their residents.”

TSET Healthy Incentive Grants for Communities are awarded to municipalities that have implemented policies to support local health, including tobacco-free areas and access to healthy foods and physical activity. TSET also has a Healthy Incentive Grant program for schools.

The next application period for TSET Healthy Incentive Grants for Communities will open March 1, 2024. Since the program’s beginning, TSET has awarded more than $5 million in Healthy Incentive grants to cities and towns throughout Oklahoma.
