This Notice of Funding Opportunity supports the achievement of four National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP) goals:

  1. Prevent initiation of commercial tobacco use among youth and young adults.
  2. Eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke.
  3. Promote quitting among adults and youth.
  4. Advance health equity by identifying and eliminating commercial tobacco product-related inequities and disparities.

These goals will be accomplished by funding the following two components:

Component 1: National Tobacco Control Program (state based)

Approximately $69.7 million per year to fund 51 recipients to implement an evidence-based state tobacco control program.

Component 2: State Commercial Tobacco Use and Dependence Treatment Support System

Approximately $16 million per year to fund 51 recipients to ensure quitline capacity during a national media campaign.

Achieving these goals will reduce chronic disease morbidity, mortality, and disability related to commercial tobacco use and dependence and secondhand smoke exposure in the United States. By the end of the five-year project period in 2025, the program will achieve the following outcomes:

  • Decreased initiation of tobacco use among youth and young adults.
  • Decreased exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • Decreased tobacco use and dependence among adults and youth.
  • Decreased tobacco-related disparities.
  • Decreased prevalence of tobacco use and dependence and decreased consumption.
  • Decreased disparities in tobacco cessation and tobacco use and dependence.


These funds will be awarded to the recipients currently funded under the National and State Tobacco Control Program, CDC-RFA-20-2001, for the budget period of 04/29/2024–04/28/2025.

Frequently asked questions

Where can I find previous DP20-2001 frequently asked questions?

Continuation application (NEW)

Will the 45-page minimum be waived as it was during the last reporting cycle?

Yes, the 45-page limit has been waived for the Year 5 Continuation Application. Please refer to the Continuation Guidance for a description of what should be reported for the required elements. The Annual Progress Reports, Work Plan(s), and Budget(s) should be uploaded as separate documents and labeled using the naming conventions outlined in the Continuation Guidance.

Should the impact statement and local lead agency workplan be submitted as a separate attachment to the Public Health Advisor?

No, the documents should be submitted with the application in GrantSolutions. Please refer to the Continuation Guidance for more information. In addition, PSB requests that a courtesy copy of the Impact Statement be provided to your Public Health Advisor.

Budget (NEW)

Do recipients need to budget for the National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH) in August 2025 within this year's budget?

No, Recipients should not include the 2025 NCTOH Conference in the budget since it does not occur during the Budget Period (04/29/2024- 04/28/2025).

Will a template be provided for the Annual Progress Report (APR) and Work Plan? Please clarify if using the AMP format for the APR.

The guidance document states to submit a Spend Plan for activities that are being carried forwards. Is there a template for this or can we submit it in a budget narrative format?

A template will not be provided for the Spend Plan. A Word or PDF document should be provided that details the activities/funding brought forward from previous budget periods (Year 3) into the current budget period (Year 4). The Spend Plan should indicate how the funds will be used by the end of Year 4 (4/28/2024). The document should be named “Spend Plan for use/intended use of unobligated”. Refer to the DP20-2001 Continuation Guidance for additional instructions.

Once a Spend Plan is submitted, are there any opportunities to adjust the plan if needed?

It is expected that recipients spend the unobligated funds by 4/28/24. If the recipient does not spend funds by that date, consult with your Public Health Advisor on a plan to spend remaining funds by the early part of Year 5.

Impact statements

Do we need an impact statement for both Component 1 and 2, or just one minimum total?

A minimum of 1 impact statement is required from each recipient (not 1 per Component).

Can you please confirm that the Impact Statement is to be based on work completed with the Local Lead Agency for the Community-Based Disparities requirement?

The impact statement does not have to be based on the Community-Based Disparities Requirement. It can be based on any of the Strategies outlined in the work plan.


If our evaluation is funded by the state (or another funding source), can the recipient describe how the funds will be used to meet the 10% requirement?

Yes, the recipient can describe how another funding source will be used to meet the requirement. However, if the funding source becomes unavailable in subsequent years, recipients must reallocate funds back to the DP20-2001 budget.
