Tobacco Control Projects

Brief Description
Two projects designed by NHF encouraged and assisted in the creation of smoke-free businesses in Los Angeles County through focused outreach programs. The first project, funded by Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, targeted 750 multi-ethnic businesses in North and East Los Angeles County. The second project, funded by the State Tobacco Control Section, was designed to motivate and assist African American businesses in developing smoke-free work environments. Ninety newly smoke-free businesses were created during the nine month project.
