HYBRID – ABOUT US > FY17 Annual Report Advocacy | American Lung Association

The American Lung Association in Indiana fought to increase funding for tobacco prevention and cessation programs which has been cut over and over again. The program originally was funded at $35 million annually in 2001 when the program first began and was cut to five million in 2013. Along with several coalitions and organizations, the Lung Association led the fight to have the program funding increased by 50% to $7.5 million yearly. The increase led to additional communities having the ability to provide tobacco control programming which was nonexistent previously.
