The State Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership (STEPP) is a collaborative partnership between the state program and the grantee projects.
CDPHE’s Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) Branch and STEPP are proud to share the 2030 Tobacco Strategic Plan. CDPHE maintains a strong commitment to health and racial equity as a foundation for all the work we do. Our vision is to eliminate tobacco use and all tobacco-related disparities from Colorado. Advancing health and racial equity through programmatic and policy efforts is our North Star. Our mission is to lead with justice to advance strategies that allow every Coloradan to have equitable access to opportunities to be healthy, to thrive, and to live a tobacco-free life, regardless of who they are and where they live.

About the Tobacco Grant Program
The Tobacco Grant Program was created by Colorado Revised Statute Section 25-3.5-804 to "provide funding for community-based and statewide tobacco education programs designed to reduce initiation of tobacco use by children and youth, promote cessation of tobacco use among youth and adults, and reduce exposure to secondhand smoke."
