About Project ACTION


Project ACTION is a Non-Profit partnership of people and organizations from Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery Counties.

Our Mission is to systematically reduce tobacco use in Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery Counties. Since 1994 we have been working to attain these goals:

  1. Prevent the initiation of tobacco use among youth
  2. Promote smoking cessation
  3. Eliminate exposure to second-hand smoke
  4. Decrease the social acceptability of tobacco use

We take ACTION in the community by educating the public and local leaders on the risks of tobacco use, exposure to second hand smoke, and tobacco industry marketing tactics used to entice youth. We assist with the development and implementation of tobacco-free policies at parks, playgrounds, businesses, and organizations. We contribute to the science of tobacco control by completing annual evaluations and data collection. We distribute up-to-date data and tobacco-related educational materials to the community.

Project ACTION is funded by the New York State Department of Health, and is housed at St. Mary's Healthcare Memorial Campus in Amsterdam, NY.
