Increase Funding for Tobacco Prevention

Michigan's 2018 Major Campaigns

Increase Funding for Tobacco Prevention

  • State funds are needed to promote and implement evidence-based strategies to reduce and prevent cancer through the Tobacco Control Program.  Increasing funds for the state’s successful Tobacco Control Program can reduce youth tobacco use and provide tobacco cessation services to state residents.  Michigan currently spends $1.6 million a year on tobacco prevention.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that Michigan spend $110 million a year.
