Georgia CORE publishes revealing report on how Tobacco Master Settlement funds are spent



December 19, 2018
Georgia CORE


In December 2018, Georgia CORE published a policy briefing of the history, purpose, and uses of Georgia’s tobacco settlement. Tobacco’s Master Settlement Agreement: How Funds are Allocated in Georgia highlights how more than $3 billion for cancer and healthcare was distributed, as well as the relationship between tobacco and cancer. The full report can be viewed and downloaded from the link below.
 
Georgia will continue to receive tobacco settlement funds "in perpetuity," so the Georgia Cancer Control Consortium is advocating for increased funding of cancer programs and services.
 
Georgia CORE is grateful to our partners for their support in this endeavor and others.
