The Lung Association continues to advocate for funding for Hawaii’s successful tobacco prevention and control programs. Dollars received through the Master Settlement Agreement with the tobacco industry are allocated to the Tobacco Settlement Special Fund. A portion of this fund is used by the Department of Health for health promotion and chronic disease prevention programs, includ- ing tobacco control programs. Another portion is deposited into the Tobacco Prevention and Control Trust Fund which provides funding for the Hawaii Quitline, media campaigns and community interven-tion grants. Facing continuing budgetary challenges, legisla-tors unfortunately chose to divert money from the Tobacco Prevention and Control Trust Fund to the general revenue budget for two years back in 2011. Due to this diversion, the tobacco program realized a slight decrease in funding this budget year (fiscal year 2013) from last year. The American Lung Association in Hawaii will con-tinue educational outreach on the vital importance of funding tobacco prevention and cessation programs.
