Created by voters in 2000, TSET is an endowment trust established with payments from the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between 46 states and the tobacco industry.  Funds are invested by a Board

of Investors and only the earnings from those investments are used by a Board of Directors to support

efforts to improve the health of Oklahomans. Watch a brief video regarding the historic story of the TSET here


TSET has focused funding on reducing Oklahoman’s leading causes of preventable death, tobacco use and obesity, in order to reduce cancer and cardiovascular disease.  As a grant-making state agency, TSET funds prevention, research and emerging opportunities to improve the health of every Oklahoman.


The Mayes County HOPE Coalition was awarded the TSET grant in 2015 and as a result the TSET Healthy Living Program was established. The Healthy Living Program focuses it's efforts on policy work to establish and improve tobacco free environments, physical activity, and access to proper nutrition within four Mayes County sectors: Businesses, Schools, Local Governments, and Community Institutions and Churches.

We do this in many ways...
