Funding to ITPC comes from Indiana's portion of the 1998 Master Tobacco Settlement Agreement. In 1998, 46 states settled with several tobacco companies for misleading marketing claims and loss of life and medical expenses through Medicaid. Indiana receives $120-150 million each year from the MSA. In SFY 2008-2009, ITPC received $15 million annually of this funding. In addition, ITPC receives $1.2 million from the cigarette tax revenue.
