The Tobacco Control Program is 100% federally funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National State-Based Tobacco Control Programs Grant 1u58dp006009-01, the CDC PPHF 2014: Tobacco Use Prevention - Public Health Approaches for Ensuring Quitline Capacity Grant 5U58DP004057-02, and the Fund for a Healthy Nevada federal grant*. The goal of a comprehensive tobacco control program is to reduce disease, disability, and death related to tobacco use by:

  • Preventing the initiation of tobacco use among young people
  • Promoting quitting among young people and adults
  • Eliminating nonsmoker's exposure to second hand smoke (SHS)

Identifying and eliminating the disparities related to tobacco use and its effects among different population groups.


*The Fund for a Healthy Nevada (FHN) grant was created in 1999 under NRS 439.620 with 50% of the state’s share of the national Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) with the tobacco industry.
