Merced County Tobacco Control Program (MCTCP)
Thank you for your interest in tobacco prevention and education in Merced County. The Merced County Tobacco Control Program has transitioned over to the Merced County Department of Public Health (MCDPH). For more information and how to get involved, please connect with the MCDPH.
The Merced County Tobacco Control Program (MCTCP) served in the capacity of the Local Lead Agency for tobacco prevention and control efforts in Merced County from July 2017 – July 2021. With funding support from the California Department of Public Health – Tobacco Control Program, MCTCP was administered by the California Health Collaborative to implement a comprehensive tobacco control plan. Program plan strategies were developed based on results of a community needs assessment and prioritization process and adhere to priority areas and guidelines set forth by the California Tobacco Control Program.
