About ClearWay Minnesota℠

ClearWay Minnesota is an independent, nonprofit organization that improves the health of all Minnesotans by reducing tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke through research, action and collaboration. We are an independent nonprofit funded by three percent of the settlement Minnesota received from the tobacco companies in 1998.

We use our portion of the settlement to help Minnesotans quit smoking and tobacco use, and to fund research, public policy and community development projects about the state. We work to raise people's awareness of the dangers of tobacco use, and to make Minnesota a healthier place. For more information on ClearWay Minnesota, visit
