apply for funds to ensure and support state quitline capacity, in order to respond to upcoming federal initiatives such as the National Tobacco Education Campaign.

http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco.

This program addresses the "Healthy People 2020" focus area of tobacco use and the goal of reducing illness, disability, and death related to tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure.

Preventing tobacco use and helping tobacco users quit can improve the health and quality of life for Americans of all ages.

People who stop smoking greatly reduce their risk of disease and premature death.

Benefits are greater for people who stop at earlier ages, but quitting tobacco use is beneficial at any age.

This FOA will be a new, 2-year cooperative agreement for all states and territories that currently have a quitline.

Funds will be used for the following:
• Address the anticipated increase in calls
• Expand capacity and eligibility to ensure all callers receive some form of assistance
• Increase efficiencies of quitline operations, such as demonstrating how they will connect to or incorporate an interactive voice recording system (IVR) at the state or federal level
• Incorporate technological enhancements to provide additional forms of assistance to callers who want to quit
• Expand paid and earned media to promote the quitline and increase quit attempts
• Develop and/or implement private/public partnerships or other strategies to sustain quitline capacity.

Agency - Department of Health and Human Services

The Department of Health and Human Services is the Federal government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially to those who are least able to help themselves.
