Description

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) provides funding and support for the National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP). The goals of OSH and the NTCP are to use evidence-based policies, systems, and environmental (PSE) changes to prevent initiation among youth; reduce exposure to secondhand smoke; promote quitting among adults and youth, and identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities. This funding opportunity will ensure NTCP recipients and their partners have access to specific, timely technical assistance from highly knowledgeable public health law experts in order to implement the strategies proven to reduce morbidity and mortality due to tobacco use. An awareness of public health law can 1) inform NTCP recipients and their partners as they identify, develop, and implement evidence-based PSE changes; and 2) provide technical assistance on public health law as it relates to tobacco control is crucial for achieving program goals....
