Community Tobacco Cessation Initiative Grant

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department (TLCHD) has been awarded the Community Cessation Initiative (CCI) grant from the Ohio Department of Health aiming to decrease tobacco use county-wide and increase access and knowledge of cessation services to Lucas County residents. The objective of this grant is to create a referral network to tobacco cessation services in Lucas County in order to best help potential patients reach the appropriate services easily, with limited barriers. Through this referral network, TLCHD will be able to complete appropriate follow-up and relapse management after treatment is complete, ensuring the best possible quit attempt.

As part of this initiative, TLCHD is working to identify and bridge the gaps in current cessation services offered in Lucas County. Additionally, we are focusing on three disparate populations: African Americans and Latinos in low socioeconomic communities, as well as pregnant women.

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department is looking for as many community partners as possible who would be interested in contributing their services and/or referrals to the CCI network. These community partnerships can include provider partnerships, referral partnerships, or both.
