Acquisition Information

The Alameda County Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) Records were given to the Tobacco Control Archives in increments by Sylvia Jimenez, CTCP Project Director, over the period of 1997-98.

Organizational History

The Alameda County Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) 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. Proposition 99 added 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.
CTCP has been active in disseminating information on the California Assembly Bill (AB 13) that banned smoking in enclosed places of employment (1994). CTCP is overseen by the Tobacco Control Coalition appointed by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors as an advisory to the County Board of Supervisors, the Alameda County Public Health Department, and the County Office of Education. CTCP's mission includes both the Tobacco Control Coalition's mission to "make tobacco use unacceptable in the community" and the Alameda County Public Health Department's mission to "ensure the optimal health and well-being of all people." CTCP has focused on reducing workers' exposure to tobacco (AB 13), and reducing youth access to tobacco products. CTCP's actions have included surveying liquor and convenience stores' willingness to sell to minors and the placement of tobacco advertisements in liquor and convenience stores, and reducing the appeal of tobacco products to minors. They have also served as a resource for tobacco information and provided referral information for tobacco cessation programs.
