We provide information about the state’s regulation of tobacco products and smoke-free laws. We serve as a resource for information on tobacco and smoke-free initiatives, tobacco surveillance and research and youth prevention programming. We provide schools, health care providers and community coalitions with resources to support quitting smoking.
We provide support and assistance to coalitions and the municipalities and worksites with which they work on the development of tobacco policies and ordinances. We also help colleges interested in pursuing smoke-free campuses. We address the impact of in-store tobacco advertising in our communities.
Smoking rates in Vermont are declining, but they remain higher in some groups. Learn more about how we provide services and supports to those with the highest rates of smoking and tobacco use.
