The Southern Tier Tobacco Awareness Coalition (STTAC) is a five-year, $1.6 million grant to support the prevention and reduction of tobacco use in Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties. The funding, “Advancing Tobacco-Free Communities”, was awarded to the Chemung County Health Department by the Tobacco Control Program within the New York State Department of Health. Effective July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2024, this award confirms the continuation of STTAC, which has been a program of the Health Department for over 20 years. With this funding, STTAC will continue to utilize community-based strategies and a strong youth leadership program to educate residents and policy makers within the tri-county region.
