Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement Grant

Application Process

The MSA Grant application process is available to all eligible nonprofit and local government agencies seeking funding for programs to provide health-related services to residents of Napa County.

 The application cycle for fiscal-year 2015-2016 grants will begin in Fall 2014 and will follow roughly the same timeline as the previous application cycle. Specific dates will be announced shortly.

We would like your feedback!

We invite all interested agencies in Napa County to provide feedback on the MSA Grant process and criteria:

  • Criteria: We are proposing changes to the MSA grant rating criteria for the upcoming application cycle, in an effort to simplify the application process and clarify the criteria. In summary, the changes would: 
    • Remove redundant criteria by including them in either the pre-application or the full application, but not in both.
    • Carry pre-application scores over to the full application; final scores would combine scores on the pre- and full-application criteria. Score modifiers would remain the same as in previous years.
    • Reword criteria to more specifically ask for input on the proposed changes to the criteria.
     Please review the proposed criteria and then take this survey to tell us what you think.
  • Process: Please take this survey to tell us about your experience with the MSA Grant application process.
