Improving Effectiveness of Smoking Cessation Interventions and Programs in Low Income Adult Populations- Deadline: November 24, 2008

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages research grant applications for projects designed to improve outcomes of smoking cessation in low income adult populations within the United States. Despite significant progress in reducing the prevalence of smoking in the United States, smoking continues to represent a major threat to public health. In addition, decreases in smoking have not been consistent across the population and marked disparities exist with smoking prevalence continuing to remain high among low-income adults. The long-term goal is to facilitate a significant reduction in smoking prevalence among low-income adults, thereby reducing the excess disease burden of tobacco use within these groups and decreasing the prevalence of smoking in the United States as a whole. This FOA is intended to support human research only. -Mechanism of Support. The NCI intends to commit approximately $1.5 million annually over 2 years to this FOA. The NCI anticipates funding four to six awards.
