Funding Opportunity Alerts:
CG 24-10056 Advancing Tobacco Cessation in Community Clinics Project (ATCP) Cohort 3
Request for Applications (RFA) is intended to fund up to ten (10) community
clinics that provide primary care including Federally Qualified Health Centers
(FQHCs), Health Center Program Look-Alikes (HCLAs), and other clinics serving
populations with low income or lacking health insurance. FQHCs are community-based
health care providers that receive funds from the Health Resources &
Services Administration (HRSA) Health Center Program to provide primary care
services in underserved areas. HCLAs meet similar HRSA requirements and receive
many of the benefits associated with FQHCs, but don’t receive HRSA funding. The
purpose of the Advancing Tobacco Cessation in Community Clinics Project (ATCP)
Cohort 3 is to measurably reduce tobacco use within the funded clinic
populations. Achieving this outcome will decrease tobacco use disparities and
reduce the burden of tobacco-related diseases.
