Tobacco Free Alachua
In 2012, the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County was awarded the Florida Community Based Tobacco Prevention Interventions Program (BTPP) grant to reduce local tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. This grant supports the Tobacco Free Alachua community partnership, a community based organization which develops and promotes policies that will:
  • Prevent youth and young adults from starting to use tobacco products
  • Protect Alachua County citizens from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Provide support for current tobacco users who want to quit
