About CADCA’s Tobacco-Free Living Efforts
CADCA is one of seven National Network Community Transformation Grantees (CTG), a program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As a CTG grantee, CADCA supports and disseminates effective tobacco-free living strategies nationally in collaboration and partnership with multiple sectors, including non-health sectors.
CADCA is also one of 8 national organizations awarded a cooperative agreement under the CDC’s Consortium of National Networks to Impact Populations Experiencing Tobacco Related and Cancer Health Disparities program in 2013. The goal of CADCA’s five-year project is to help reduce tobacco use rates and cancer incidences in geographic areas facing health disparities.
Over the years, CADCA has developed a number of tools and resources to help CADCA-member coalitions and other organizations working on tobacco issues prevent and reduce tobacco use – such as feature articles, issue briefs, publications, toolkits, videos, webinars and training and technical assistance.
