Tobacco Policy and Control Program

Working to reduce smoking rates and expand smoke-free environments in Philadelphia.


Get Healthy Philly's Tobacco Policy and Control Program promotes smoke-free environments and helps people quit smoking. We work to:

  • Enforce policies that restrict smoking and who can buy tobacco products.
  • Make it harder to youth to get tobacco products.
  • Encourage youth to live smoke-free lives.
  • Make it easier for smokers to quit by partnering with insurance companies, employers, health care providers, and the media.
  • Assess and change tobacco pricing.
  • Help retailers get permits to sell tobacco and nicotine products.
  • Change norms by partnering with the community, youth leaders, and academic institutions.

We also convene the Smoke-Free Philly Coalition, which brings together tobacco control professionals and advocates to help build a healthy and smoke-free city. If you would like to be part of the Coalition, email gethealthyphilly@phila.gov.
