Action Planning for Sustained Local Tobacco Prevention and Control Efforts Grant Program


The National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office on Smoking and Health (CDC/OSH), are pleased to offer this opportunity for action planning to improve the ability of local public health professionals, leaders, and tobacco control advocates to plan and implement activities that support sustainable tobacco control program efforts and resources over the long term. The grant program that includes a 1-day action planning meeting, conducted in the host’s community, is designed to improve the capacity of community-based stakeholders and partners by forming a local team to share knowledge about CDC-approved programming and funding guidelines for comprehensive local tobacco control programs and to promote ongoing commitment and resources for tobacco control efforts.

Grant Information

NALBOH and NACCHO will provide $5,000 to selected teams to assist in developing an action plan that addresses local tobacco prevention and control issues.
