Chicago Tobacco Prevention Project Partners

On September 17, Respiratory Health Association and Chicago Department of Public Health announced awards of more than $2 million to 30 community organizations. The awards come as part of the Chicago Tobacco Prevention Project, which aims to provide vulnerable communities with smoking cessation resources and promote policies that encourage tobacco-free living.

Partners will implement policy, systems and environmental changes that decrease smoking rates and exposure to secondhand smoke among vulnerable populations across Chicago. Targeted population groups include: racial minority groups, people with low income levels, youth, LGBT people, mental health and substance abuse communities, veterans, women who are pregnant and women of childbearing age.
