The purpose of the Tobacco Regulation Awareness, Communication, and Education Program is to assist entities to establish or expand health education and communication programs at the community level congruent with the Tobacco Control Act.

The Program will advance public health by supporting community-based programs that work to identify and disseminate evidence-based, community-level best practices and improving access to standardized, community-level data.

Strong applications will seek to educate and communicate to:

  1. Promote the understanding of the consequences of tobacco use through individual and community actions

  3. Increase cessation among those who use tobacco products
