RFA CA-99-001, published in the NIH Guide, February 11, 1999, solicits
research project grant (R01) applications to stimulate research on new or
existing tobacco control interventions relevant to State and community tobacco
control programs.  This will be achieved by supporting research on innovative
tobacco prevention and control interventions at the community, State, or
multi-state level.  The results of this research will guide tobacco control
programs across the Nation, in order to increase program effectiveness and
produce real reductions in the prevalence of tobacco use.  The full text of
the RFA can be accessed at:

Representatives from the NCI's extramural research programs, Grants
Administration Branch and Division of Extramural Activities will be available
to provide information and to answer questions relevant to applications
responding to this RFA.  Transcripts will be available upon request for
investigators who are unable to attend.
