National Reach and Priority Projects 

As part of the Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) program, National Reach and Priority Projects (NRPP) funding will be made available in 2024 to achieve better health outcomes for Indigenous people in the following five areas:

Two thematic areas:

  1. Expanding the TIS program's reach, to increase exposure of First Nations peoples to smoke-free and vape-free messaging and/or activities; and/or

  2. Increasing the focus on preventative population health activities, to support the development, promotion and/or implementation of smoking and vaping prevention resources and/or activities across multiple regions; and/or

Three priority groups:

  1. Young Indigenous people (youth) to support and improve their understanding of the harms of vaping and smoking, to prevent and reduce uptake in multiple geographies; and/or

  2. Communities in remote and very remote Australia; and/or

  3. Indigenous pregnant women, their families and women of childbearing age.


A total fund of over $8 million will be available for projects. The successful projects will:

  • showcase an ability to increase the Tackling Indigenous Smoking program’s reach (learn more about Tackling Indigenous Smoking here)

  • address the five NRPP areas above

  • complement, or avoid duplication of, other elements of the national TIS program.
