CG 14-10013 Make Tobacco History

March 14, 2014, 5:00 p.m. PST

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH), California Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) intends to fund one to four projects that will research, plan, develop, and disseminate innovative policy, regulation, and promising community norm change strategies, which can be replicated by others to create healthy sustainable communities which dissuade tobacco use.  These innovative strategies are to take a population-based approach and will facilitate: reducing the number of persons beginning to use tobacco, continuing to use tobacco, or developing tobacco-related diseases.

The beneficiaries of activities funded by this RFA are persons and groups at high risk for tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure, and the local public health community of California which includes but is not limited to  local health departments, cities, planning agencies, local government officials, local decision-makers, schools, voluntary health organizations, hospitals, professional organizations, and community based organizations working with persons and groups at high risk for tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure.  In performing activities to benefit the local public health community, the purpose of those activities must be to assist the local public health community in the performance of their services to others. It may not be for the provision of services to the state itself nor may it be for the provision of services to organizations whose mission is not in alignment with the applicant’s.

The solicitation process is to identify an agency or agencies whose background, qualifications, and proposed project(s) best address(es) the goals detailed in the RFA.
