CG20-10003 California Tribal Grants to Reduce Tobacco-Related Disparities

The purpose of the California Tribal Grants to Reduce Tobacco-Related Disparities is to address commercial tobacco-related disparities affecting the American Indian population by directly funding and assisting California Tribal Governments and Tribal Government Agencies. This Request for Application (RFA) seeks to reduce tobacco-related health disparities in American Indian communities through tribal approaches focused on commercial tobacco use prevention and reduction, collaboration, and community engagement. CDPH/CTCP anticipates releasing a total of three waves of funding between February 2019 and January 2020. The first wave of funding was released in February 2019 and the second wave was released in June 2019. This RFA is the release of the third wave of funding.

The term "tobacco" used in this RFA refers to commercial tobacco products. This RFA does not seek to impinge upon the sacred use of traditional or ceremonial tobacco in American Indian communities.

The purpose of this project is to reduce tobacco use and promote wellness policies and activities among individuals with behavioral health and substance use disorders in community residential behavioral health facilities through the adoption and implementation of tobacco-free campus policies, implementation of evidence based nicotine addiction treatment, and other wellness policies and system changes that support tobacco use cessation. The Wellness Quality Improvement Project (QIP) seeks to reduce tobacco-related disparities in residential behavioral health settings through grantee's participation in specialized training and support for tobacco policy change, paired with the promotion of other wellness approaches such as increasing exercise breaks, improving access to healthy foods, and promoting socialization and activities for wellbeing.
