Public Health Department (PHD)



The Tobacco Prevention Settlement Program (TPSP) provides a variety of prevention, enforcement, and support services to the community. Our ultimate goals are to prevent youth, and all non-smokers, from becoming tobacco users, to assist smokers in their efforts to quit, and to protect the public from the harmful effects of tobacco and secondhand smoke.  


Life without smoke.  It's a beautiful world.





If your organization provides human or social services in Santa Barbara County and serves people with high rates of tobacco use then the "Pioneers in Tobacco Control" project is your opportunity to receive funding. For more information and to apply, please click here.



Tobacco related materials are available to the public. A list of current program resources is available upon request. Program staff will provide in-service and training to health care providers and community agencies. TPSP also responds to community complaints or questions concerning tobacco-related laws, countywide.
