U.S. Tobacco Control Policies to Reduce Health Disparities (R01 and R21)
Application: Jun 13, 2018
This program provides grants to support observational or intervention research focused on reducing health disparities in tobacco use in the United States.
The opportunity is intended to stimulate scientific inquiry focused on innovative tobacco control policies, including, but not limited to:
- Protecting nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure
- Insurance coverage for tobacco dependence treatment
- Other promising public and private tobacco control policy approaches
One of the challenges highlighted in the application instructions is using communication strategies to reach rural populations, people with limited contact with the healthcare system, and other vulnerable groups.
R01 funding supports discrete, specified, circumscribed research projects.
R21 funding encourages new, exploratory, and developmental research projects by providing support for the early stages of project development.
Eligible applicants include

- Public and private institutions of higher education
- Federally or state recognized tribal governments
- Public and Indian housing authorities
- Native American tribal organizations
- Nonprofits with or without 501(c)(3) status
- For-profit organizations and small businesses
R01 application budgets are not limited, but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
For R21 projects, the combined budget for direct costs for the 2 year project period may not exceed $275,000. No more than $200,000 may be requested in any single year.
