What's New?

Coalition for Tobacco-Free Arizona

Due to financial constraints, CTFA will remain an organization (with a Web site, monthly updates, and quarterly meetings) but become purely voluntary. Despite fundraising, grant writing, and other limitations (including the limitations on travel and the economy) the organization will not be able to have a paid staff member. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact us.
