This collection documents the activities of the Tobacco Free Project of the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFTFP).
The bulk of the material in this collection is made up of contracts, reports, and other materials generated by the SFTFP and
its contracting agencies.
The Tobacco Free Project of the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFTFP) is one of the local lead agencies (LLAs)
designated by the California State legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section, to create
tobacco education programs and receive Proposition 99 educational moneys. Proposition 99 was a California statewide referendum
passed in 1988 that raised the excise tax on tobacco sales, adding an additional 25-cent tax on each package of cigarettes
and a proportional tax increase on other tobacco products. This tax raised California's tobacco tax to be among the highest
in the United States, and designated that a portion of the tax moneys would go for anti-tobacco health education projects.
As an LLA, SFTFP coordinates local tobacco education activities. It serves as an oversight and regranting agency, contracting
with numerous local institutions and organizations to create tobacco education and intervention programs that will reach different
sectors of San Francisco's diverse population.
