American Lung Association in Pennsylvania FY18 Mini-Grant

The American Lung Association is the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States, with a National Office and chartered associations around the country. Founded in 1903 to fight tuberculosis, the American Lung Association today fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on asthma, tobacco control and environmental health.

The mission of the American Lung Association is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. In 2009, the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to serve as the Primary Contractor of Tobacco Control Funds for the South Central PA Health Districts (Adams, Bedford, Blair, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lebanon, Mifflin, Perry and York Counties). As of 2016, the American Lung Association has been able to extend the service area to include the North Central PA Health District (Bradford, Centre, Clinton, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga and Union Counties) and North East PA Health District (Carbon, Lackawanna, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Northampton, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne, Wyoming Counties). As a result of this partnership, American Lung Association in Pennsylvania is offering mini-grants to community partners, who serve the Health Districts mentioned above, to assist with the following initiatives:

1. Cessation
2. Tobacco Resistance Unit (TRU)
