ActionToQuit State Grant Program 2010

ActionToQuit State Grants in 2010 were awarded to Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New England, New York and Virginia for the implementation of innovative strategies to increase access to tobacco cessation treatments. Funds were used primarily for the development of state alliances/summit meetings and the creation of strategic plans. The six original ActionToQuit grantees also received funds to continue efforts made in 2010. Funds awarded were used to implement the state strategic plans developed during the first year of the program.
