Tobacco Use Prevention Program
The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Service has received a CDC funded Community Transformation Grant (CTG) that will support community-level efforts to reduce chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.
By promoting healthy lifestyles, especially among population groups experiencing the greatest burden of chronic disease, this grant will help improve health, reduce health disparities, and control health care spending.
This grant will help the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program and its community-based programs accelerate and expand efforts to promote comprehensive smokefree policies among Montana public housing authorities and other federal, state, and local rent-restricted, multi-unit housing facilities.
Such policies support MTUPP’s mission to improve the health of community members and address the number one cause of preventable disease and death - tobacco use.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have come together to increase awareness about the dangers of secondhand smoke through the Smoke Free Home Campaign. This program offers you the chance to take a pledge to keep cigarette smoke out of your home, allowing you to take the first step toward a smoke-free life and keep harmful secondhand smoke away from your children.
