Request for Proposals (RFP): Smoking Cessation

Friday, July 20, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

I. Background

The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) at the University of California in San Francisco and the Pfizer Medical Education Group (MEG) are collaborating to offer a new grant opportunity focused on smoking cessation.

Pfizer’s MEG provides independent grant support to organizations for healthcare quality improvement and education projects related to smoking cessation. MEG’s goal is to increase the number of people who stop smoking by improving the frequency and effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions (e.g., counseling and/or FDA-approved pharmacotherapy) provided by health professionals.

The SCLC, which is volunteering its assistance to this grants program and receives no financial remuneration from Pfizer, is a national program office of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and also receives significant support from the American Legacy Foundation. The mission of the SCLC is to increase smoking cessation rates and increase the number of health professionals who help smokers quit. The Center creates partnerships with a variety of groups and institutions to develop and implement action plans for smoking cessation. Partnerships with dental hygienists, nurses, pharmacists, emergency physicians, hospitals, labor unions, family physicians, counselors, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and myriad other groups all lead toward the same goal: saving lives by increasing smoking cessation rates and cessation interventions.

This Request for Proposals is being issued by both organizations. The SCLC is the lead organization for review and evaluation of applications. A review committee, led by the SCLC will make decisions on which proposals will receive funding. Grant funding will be provided by Pfizer. Collectively, up to $2 million is available for award (see the full RFP for eligibility and size of awards).

Once announced through this distribution list, the RFP will also be posted on our website at Please refer to the full text of the RFP for various key dates. Also, please note, you must be registered in the system to submit an LOI.
