Public Health Approaches for Ensuring Quitline Capacity

CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) announces the availability of Fiscal Year 2014 funds to implement DP14-1410PPHF14, Public Health Approaches for Ensuring Quitline Capacity. Approximately $21 million will be dispersed to states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico through a non-competitive FOA to expand state quitline capacity with the purpose of responding to anticipated increases in calls to state quitlines resulting from ongoing and upcoming federal initiatives such as the CDC’s national tobacco education campaign and other upcoming CDC/HHS and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) education media campaigns.

The four-year project is expected to begin on August 1, 2014.

This funding announcement is only for non-research domestic activities supported by CDC. If research is proposed, the application will not be reviewed. For the definition of research, see Distinguishing Public Health Research and Public Health Nonresearch [PDF–137.38 KB]


General Information

The primary purpose of this FOA is to ensure and expand quitline capacity so that all callers to the quitline during a federal education media campaign are offered at least one coaching call, either immediately upon calling or by being re-contacted within two to three days. The secondary purpose is to continue to expand the capacity of state tobacco control programs to implement evidence-based cessation interventions in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. These interventions include: (1) ensure infrastructure for state quitline; (2) improve quitline capacity; (3) participate in surveillance and evaluation efforts; (4) identify and target disparate populations; (5) improve sustainability; (6) increase media efforts; (7) enhance quitline protocol and operations; (8) improve understanding of comprehensive cessation coverage for Medicaid recipients; and (9) promote health systems change.

The official FOA is at Grants.Gov.
