NJPN coordinates the Tobacco Free for a Healthy NJ (TFHNJ) statewide project focusing on increasing our residents’ access to smoke-free air where they work, live, and play. NJPN receives funding from the New Jersey Department of Health, Office of Tobacco Control, Nutrition and Fitness to provide regional outreach efforts in partnership with Atlantic Prevention Resources and the Center for Prevention and Counseling.
The TFHNJ Program works to reduce tobacco use and the negative impact of secondhand smoke in all counties of New Jersey with a focus on Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Monmouth, Ocean, Salem, Sussex and Warren. This project promotes opportunities for smoke-free living by providing training and technical assistance to housing authorities, property managers, and landlords who want to transition their multi-unit housing complexes to smoke-free housing, reducing their costs and improving the health of their residents.
The program also provides business owners with help improving or creating new Worksite Wellness initiatives to support cessation and reduce tobacco use among our workforce. In addition, NJPN staff provides technical assistance to municipalities looking to improve the health of their residents. They can receive assistance to create smoke-free outdoor ordinances as well as to reduce youth access to cigarettes, e-cigarettes and hookah by implementing point-of-sale strategies in establishments that sell these products.
