Actual Spending on Tobacco Prevention (FY2013)
Summary: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that New Hampshire spend $19.2 million a year to have an effective, comprehensive tobacco prevention program. New Hampshire does not currently allocate anything for tobacco prevention and cessation and as a result it ranks 50th among the states in the funding of tobacco prevention programs. New Hampshire collects an estimated $256 million in tobacco-generated revenue each year from settlement payments and tobacco taxes.
Background and Recent Developments: New Hampshire continues to invest no state funds in tobacco prevention and cessation.
New Hampshire is receiving $1.3 million in federal funds dedicated to tobacco prevention and control:
$1.0 million from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a 12-month grant for the period beginning April 2012 (from annual appropriations).
$90,876 from the Prevention and Public Health Fund in the new health care reform law for the period beginning August 1, 2012.
$202,074 from the Food and Drug Administration for enforcement of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, including the provision regarding tobacco sales to minors.
