Tobacco Control
Tobacco Free for a Healthy NJ (TFHNJ) is a statewide project focusing on increasing residents’ access to smoke-free air where they work, live, and play. NJPN receives funding from the New Jersey Department of Health’s Office of Tobacco Control, Nutrition and Fitness to support Tobacco Retailer Audits and the adoption of Outdoor Recreation Ordinances at the municipal and county-level.
