    TMAF funded projects are selected on their ability to target urgent health needs affecting a large segment of the state's residents with results that can be measured. Projects often involve public-private partnerships, which maximize the effectiveness of programs and enable efforts to be tailored to meet local needs.

    Funded initiatives focus on the public health and science priorities of TMA: health promotion and disease prevention; targeted public health issues; science-based clinical decision making; public health advocacy and resources; scientific information; and border health.
