Getting involved in your community.

Want to find out what’s happening in your community? Are you involved in a local PTA that is interested in learning more about other tobacco products? Contact your Tobacco-Free Community Partnership (TFCP) to learn more.

TFCPs are funded by MTCP to support communities’ efforts to help people quit using tobacco, prevent youth from starting, and protect everyone from secondhand smoke.

Each TFCP is part of a statewide network of programs that work to enhance state and local tobacco control efforts, mobilize support for community change, and highlight work being done in the community to support tobacco-free living. Visit the TFCP Facebook page.
