The Mississippi State Department of Health's Office of Tobacco Control provides funding for 34 community-based Mississippi Tobacco-free Coalitions (MTFCs), together covering cover all 82 counties in the state and implementing tobacco control programs at the grassroots level.

MTFCs work to prevent the initiation of tobacco use among youth, reduce exposure to secondhand smoke, promote tobacco cessation services, and eliminate tobacco-related disparities. They partner with schools, faith-based and community service organizations, businesses, and a number of health advocacy organizations to provide education and resources to the communities that they serve, and provide assistance to Mississippi municipalities in working toward comprehensive smoke-free ordinances.

Activities

Activities that the Coalitions conduct in their communities include:

  • Monthly Awareness Presentations
  • RAT on the ROAD Presentations
  • Youth Advocacy Activities
  • Youth Leadership Events
  • Care for Their Air Pledge

They also participate in annual national observances:
