Dover seeks grant for 300 no-smoking signs

DOVER — The City of Dover is moving forward on its recently passed no-smoking ordinance that is now in effect at city buildings, including the Dover Public Library, and parks.

City officials, at the suggestion of Councilman Brian Lewis, hand delivered a completed grant application on Wednesday to The American Lung Association in hopes of obtaining $11,400 to help pay for 300 no-smoking signs on city properties to be installed by the Public Works Department.

The American Lung Association, through a contract with the Delaware Division of Public Health, is currently accepting applications for the Tobacco Prevention Community Outreach Mini-Grant Program.

The grant may be awarded to communities and organizations that can demonstrate a strong commitment to tobacco prevention and control programs in Delaware.

The grant can pay a maximum (one time per year) of $12,000. One-third of the funding will be provided upon approval of the project. Matching funds are not required for the grant.
