Tobacco Control Policies to Promote Health Equity (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, IHEs, government agencies, and tribal organizations for research related to tobacco use. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to support studies that help to reduce disparities in tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure. The program aims to stimulate scientific inquiry focused on innovative state and local-level tobacco prevention and control policies. The long-term goal is to reduce disparities in tobacco-related cancers, and in doing so, to promote health equity among all populations.
Program goals:Protecting nonsmokers from secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure;Reducing the appeal of tobacco products through state or local level restrictions on advertising and marketing;Reducing the demand for tobacco products through state or local level tax and pricing strategies;Providing insurance coverage for tobacco dependence treatment; andOther promising public and private tobacco control policy approaches.All applications must include an overall strategy that builds upon rigorous dissemination and implementation science. Investigators should include a well-designed plan for proactively disseminating research findings, including a specific plan for identifying and engaging critical community partners in the research, clearly described roles and responsibilities of key partners, and plans regarding the nature and extent of future collaborations. Investigators should describe the communication plan and a detailed list of responsible parties for decision-making and dissemination of research findings.Primary research topics that fall within the scope of this FOA include, but are not limited to the following:Comprehensive smoke-free policies (e.g., how to increase adoption and implementation of comprehensive smoke-free policies in workplaces, multi-unit housing, homes, vehicles, parks, etc.);Policies to reduce the appeal of tobacco products through advertising and marketing restrictions at the state or local level, or reduce the demand for tobacco products with various pricing interventions;Policies related to coverage for tobacco dependence treatment (e.g., state, local, and/or federal policies affect access to, affordability, and use of cessation services among high-risk populations, and the impact of surcharges on tobacco users);Overarching policy environment (e.g. studies that examine the dynamic interplay of different tobacco prevention and control policies on tobacco use, how tobacco control policies may work together to reduce tobacco use among both youth and adults, focusing on how to accelerate progress in communities that have experienced slower declines in tobacco use, etc.); andInnovative dissemination and implementation of research findings.
