CG 22-10008 Advancing Tobacco Cessation in Community Clinics Project
This Request for Application (RFA) is intended to fund up to ten (10) Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). 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. The purpose of the Advancing Tobacco Cessation in Community Clinics Project (ATCP) 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.
