Image stating Cigarette Smoking is Down, but  About 34 million American Adults Still SmokeSCPH and its partners work to reduce tobacco-related diseases and deaths by:

  • Preventing young people from starting to use tobacco.
  • Promoting quitting among adults and young people.
  • Reducing exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • Identifying and eliminating tobacco-related health disparities.

The goals of the Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Program grant are to create social norm change through community action to decrease initiation and use of tobacco in local communities and to decrease the community’s exposure to secondhand smoke while focusing on increasing the readiness of your community to initiate and engage in tobacco control and cessation strategies. This grant supports the adoption of smoke-free policies in residential and public housing complexes.
