HUD’s Action Plan to Create Smoke-free Multifamily Housing

October 20, 2014

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes released today Change is in the Air: An Action Guide for Establishing Smoke-Free Public Housing and Multifamily Properties.

The purpose of this Action Guide is to encourage PHAs and owners/agents of subsidized or market rate multifamily housing to adopt smoke-free policies. The guide also includes insights from some of the early implementers, referred to as smoke-free pioneers. These insights address common questions and concerns PHAs and owners/agents have about smoke-free policies. You can help HUD continue its smoke-free housing initiative by providing details of your experience implementing a smoke-free policy and offering feedback on this Action Guide.
