The Tobacco Control Network (TCN) is comprised of the tobacco control program managers and additional staff from each state, territory, and D.C. This wide representation allows the Network to access a wealth of expertise and experience from across the country.

Formed in 1994, the Network’s primary function was to facilitate information sharing between the NCI-funded ASSIST Program, the CDC-funded IMPACT program and other national partners. With the creation of the National Tobacco Control Program in 1999, in which CDC provided funding to all state health departments for tobacco control programs, the Network reorganized with a focus on raising the primacy of tobacco control in all state health agencies and fostering collaboration and communication among state programs.
