Tobacco Education, Prevention and Cessation Grant Program Review Committee Seeks Members

The Tobacco Education, Prevention and Cessation Grant Program, on behalf of the Colorado Board of Health, is currently seeking applicants for three vacant positions.

The Tobacco Education, Prevention and Cessation Grant Program, commonly referred to as the "Tobacco Review Committee", is a statutorily-mandated Review Committee who represent the following:
  • Statewide nonprofit organization with a demonstrated expertise in and commitment to tobacco control 
  • A socio-demographic disadvantaged population in Colorado 
  • An association representing family physicians 
 The Review Committee is a 16-member working advisory board created to ensure that tobacco grant program priorities are established consistent with the Colorado Tobacco Prevention and Control Strategic Plan, oversee program strategies and activities, and ensure that program grants are in compliance with statutorily-mandated requirements. Based on these responsibilities, the Review Committee makes funding recommendations to the Colorado Board of Health. The tobacco grant program is funded with a portion of state tobacco excise tax revenue.

The Tobacco Review Committee meets on the third Friday of each month, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Member responsibilities include participatory attendance at committee meetings and additional time during the year for budget planning and grant review. Members may be asked to serve on ad hoc committees occasionally. Members serve without compensation, but will be reimbursed for travel expenses.

Applications are due Friday, June 1, 2012. The current members of the Tobacco Review Committee will review applications and make recommendations for this position to the Colorado Board of Health. For more information and to access the application, visit the Review Committee website or contact Rochelle Manchego.
