CG 22-10403 Empowering Local Communities to End the Tobacco Epidemic

November 17, 2022 - 5:00 PM

The purpose of this RFA is to fund up to 25 local projects to build momentum toward ending California’s tobacco epidemic through policy, systems, and environmental change strategies and increasing community engagement in these strategies within populations that have been disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry, including the following population groups: African American/Black; Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI); Latino; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ+).

This RFA requires awardees to work on local policy objectives that would make the greatest impact on the population’s health and the environment and to engage priority population groups in these efforts. Awardees will implement a prescribed Scope of Work (SOW), which includes community education, capacity building, community organizing, and coordination and collaboration activities.
