The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year (FY) 2018 Supplemental funds for awardees previously awarded under Public Health Approaches for Ensuring Quitline Capacity, CDC-RFA-DP14-1410PPHF14. The supplement will fund this cooperative agreement for an additional 12 months (August 1, 2018—July 31, 2019) to ensure quitline capacity so that everyone who calls during a federal media campaign receives counseling services within 3 days (at least one coaching call, either immediately upon calling or by being re-contacted within two to three days). The State Tobacco Control Programs will also continue to expand their capacity and implement evidence-based cessation interventions among the 46 previously funded awardees. These inventions 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.


These one-time funds will be awarded to the Awardees currently funded under CDC-RFA-DP14-1410PPHF14, entitled “Public Health Approaches for Ensuring Quitline Capacity” financed Solely by Prevention and Public Health Funds (PPHF).
