The District of Columbia Department of Health (DOH) seeks community input on tobacco control activities with the DC Tobacco Free Coalition. This is another step in DOH’s grant application to help District residents live healthier lifestyles that include physical activity and good nutrition and are free of the use of tobacco products.
The grant, which is called the Communities Putting Prevention to Work Program, is funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Based on our population, the District of Columbia is eligible to compete for up to $20 million, which includes $10 million for tobacco control activities and $10 million for physical activity and nutrition.
