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, interventions and systems 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 inform NTCP funded and non-funded partners as they identify, develop, and implement evidence-based interventions. Providing NTCP recipients and their partners with technical assistance on public health law as it relates to tobacco control is crucial for achieving program goals. This funding opportunity builds on the successes of CDC-RFA-DP16-1610, Tobacco Prevention and Control Related Public Health Law Technical Assistance. National access to technical assistance also assures that all programs, regardless of geographic location or organizational resources, have tailored, tobacco control-specific expertise available to support their efforts. Note that this technical assistance regarding public health law should not be construed as legal advice and therefore does not replace a NTCP funded or non-funded partner organization's own counsel or legal advice.
