Even though public housing is now smoke free, public housing buildings and residents may still be affected by thirdhand smoke. On
this month’s Connect Call we will explain what thirdhand smoke is and highlight what public housing agencies should know about it including health impacts and tips for cleaning up a smoky unit.
What is a Connect Call? A Connect Call is a monthly live discussion and Q&A on HUD’s smoke-free public housing rule hosted by Clean Air for All. Get answers to your questions about the rule, resident engagement, cessation resources, compliance, and enforcement. The primary audience alternates each month between PHA staff and resident service providers and resident leaders.
