Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Kentucky Center for Smoke-free Policy Contract with the Kentucky Department for Public Health, 2024-2025 Abstract The purpose of the contract is to provide outreach, technical assistance, training and communication to support advocates and other stakeholders as they lead local and state smoke- and tobacco-free campaigns. KCSP will guide community advocates and other stakeholders to apply our evidence-based policy advocacy model to guide smoke-free policy development by focusing on building capacity, building demand, and translating and disseminating the science. A critical component is helping communities assess community readiness for smoke-free policy, develop strategic plans, and assist with local campaigns to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke. KCSP will also translate and disseminate scientific information through data collection, interpretation, written reports, a regular e-newsletter, county-level fact sheets and other data-related fact sheets and share with communities, on social media, and make available online. We will maintain our website, serving as a clearinghouse for up-to-date information on secondhand smoke and smoke- and tobacco-free policy, including updating our smoke-free ordinance database. KCSP will also plan and implement an annual statewide smoke-free conference to facilitate the exchange of best practices among community advocates to promote smoke- and tobacco-free environments, environmental risk reduction, and public health.
