  • Work Plan Area Goal 2: Eliminate nonsmokers' exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Work Plan Area Goal 3: Promote quitting among young people and adults
  • Work Plan Area Goal 4: Identify and Eliminate Tobacco-Related Disparities Among Population Groups - Required

Throughout the application process, applicants are required to address Work Plan Area Goal 4, Identify and Eliminate Tobacco-Related Disparities Among Population Groups, in the activities of their Work Plan.

For additional information about The Tobacco Control Work Plan and Required Activities, see Pages 20 to 24 in the RFP in Supporting Documents below. 

Community Partnerships shall promote a wide range of activities that discourage tobacco use and support tobacco/nicotine-free environments. Some of these activities include developing coalitions with local organizations and encouraging policies that support tobacco use prevention and cessation. A strong Community Partnership is one that will utilize broad community involvement within each county served.

IDPH follows Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) guidelines for comprehensive National Tobacco Control Programs. State-level initiatives addressing those guidelines include Quitline Iowa cessation services, youth tobacco-use prevention programming, enforcement of Iowa’s Smokefree Air Act and enforcement of laws prohibiting tobacco sales to minors.
