Texas Youth Tobacco Awareness Program (TYTAP)

Thank you for visiting the Texas Youth Tobacco Awareness Program (TYTAP) webpage. The Department of State Health Services maintains this webpage, but pursuant to Senate Bill 200, regulatory authority over TYTAP has transferred to the Health and Human Services Commission. (HHSC) as of September 1, 2017.



Welcome to the home page of the Texas Youth Tobacco Awareness Program (TYTAP). The program is responsible for ensuring that Texas youth are able to complete a tobacco awareness course as mandated by the 75th Texas Legislature through the Texas Health & Safety Code, Sec.161.253. TYTAP uses the Texas Adolescent Tobacco Use and Cessation curriculum. The ongoing growth of this program and long-term evaluation is the result of collaboration between the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and Texas A&M School of Public Health.
