Grants of $4,000 to USA, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, and Canada funding source chapters, and USA medical residency programs, for tobacco prevention and control efforts at the state and local level. The objective of this grant project is to promote healthy interventions in preventing and treating tobacco use and nicotine dependence.

Funding will be awarded for the implementation of action plans using evidence-based interventions to achieve goal(s) with measurable outcomes in one of three key focus areas: office-based tools, community engagement, or advocacy. A list of potential ideas is provided for each focus area, or you may develop your own innovative project.

1) Office Tools:

-Encourage family physicians or residents to identify at-risk populations for tobacco use and provide training materials to targeted practices in your state (eg, county or region that has higher tobacco use). Evaluate the use and effectiveness of the training materials.

-Develop and implement an innovative team-based office practice model to address tobacco prevention and/or cessation.

-Create a project on how to integrate tobacco prevention/cessation into family physician office work flow and include electronic health record integration.

2) Community Engagement

-Collaborate with your local health department to create and implement a joint project to engage and educate youth about being tobacco free.

-Demonstrate use of Health Landscape ( or another mapping site to determine community needs and develop and implement a project to address them.

-Develop and collaborate with other partners on an innovative program to integrate Tar Wars in your community.

-Investigate local or national tobacco prevention/control programs or organizations in your community and partner with them on a community project.

3) Advocacy

-Develop and implement a plan to identify and address key legislative priorities on tobacco issues in your state. Recruit tobacco-free champions from members in your state to be an expert on tobacco prevention and control issues.

-Develop a train-the-trainer program to advocate for tobacco-free communities.

-Partner with tobacco-free coalitions and create a joint project on youth activism efforts.

-Provide education on hot topics in tobacco control (e-cigarettes, Marijuana, Tobacco 21, etc.)

The grant provides $2,000 to cover costs when starting the project and $2,000 following completion and submission of the final report to the AAFP.
