The Health District also passed Resolution 2021-23 establishing the 2021-22 Tobacco Prevention Contract with the Benton Franklin Health District, as well as Resolution 2021-22 which creates an amendment to the Consolidated Contract that increases the Covid-19 funding in several areas with a total of $121,505. This contract lasts until December 31, 2021, at which time it will regenerate into a 2022 contract that begins anew.
