The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a new rule that requires all public housing to implement a smoke-free policy, or update their current policy, by July 30, 2018. The goal of the rule is to protect the health and safety of residents and staff, lower maintenance costs, and reduce the risk of deadly and costly fires.
Clean Air for All: The Smoke-Free Public Housing Project provides training and technical assistance to public housing agencies, resident services staff, and public housing residents impacted by HUD’s smoke-free public housing rule. This project enhances stakeholders’ capacity to transition to and maintain successful smoke-free public housing environments for all.
We have gathered some resources on implementation, compliance, enforcement, and cessation to help you with a smoke-free policy for your public housing agency (PHA).VISIT OUR RESOURCE BANK
