The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to fund 1-3 grants that will plan, develop, disseminate and support implementation of evidence-based and promising policies and practices that promote community-norm change strategies, which can be replicated by others to create healthy sustainable communities that dissuade or eliminate tobacco use. Funded projects are expected to apply the most current research findings to prevent and reduce tobacco use and promote innovative population-based approaches to reduce 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 of tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure, and the local public health communities of California, which include, but are not limited to: local health departments, cities, counties, planning agencies, local government officials, local policymakers, 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.

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