The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to fund approximately 26 to 35 grants to implement and evaluate policy, system, and environment change efforts aimed at preventing and reducing tobacco use among population groups with high rates of smoking.  The populations of focus for this RFA are those identified in draft 2015 -2017 Master Plan of the Tobacco Education and Research Oversight Committee (TEROC), Changing Landscape Countering New Threats.  As identified in the July 2014 TEROC Master Plan draft, these are:  African Americans (AA); other people of African descent; American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN); Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders; some Asian American men; Hispanics/Latinos; people of low socioeconomic status (SES), including the homeless; people with limited education, including high school non-completers; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people; rural residents; current members of the military, veterans; individuals employed in jobs or occupations not covered by smoke-free workplace laws; people with substance use disorders or behavioral health issues; people with disabilities; and formerly incarcerated individuals.

Geographically, applications may focus locally, in multiple communities, or statewide. Applications are to focus on the following priority areas: 1) Limit Tobacco Promoting Influences; 2) Reduce Exposure to Secondhand Smoke, Tobacco Smoke Residue, Tobacco Waste, and Other Tobacco Products; 3) Reduce the Availability of Tobacco, including Emerging Products; and 4) Promote Tobacco Cessation.  Please note, applications that focus solely on cessation will not be reviewed.  Applications proposing cessation-related interventions must propose comprehensive, population-based cessation strategies and at least one other non-cessation strategy.  This RFA will not fund the provision of direct cessation services.  Applications may include activities that link the use of tobacco to other community concerns and root causes of tobacco use, as appropriate within the authority provided by California Health and Safety Code Sections 104350-104445 and pursuant to the parameters outlined in the RFA.
