Who We Are
Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET)
TSET is a state agency that makes grants aimed at reducing the leading causes of preventable death in our state – cancer and heart disease – by focusing on tobacco use prevention and obesity prevention.
Oklahoma voters in 2000 approved a constitutional amendment that created the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Fund to invest payments from the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement. TSET programs and grants are funded by the earnings from the endowment fund.
Oklahoma is the only state that has constitutionally protected Master Settlement Agreement payments to ensure the earnings are used for programs and grants to improve the health of Oklahomans.
