Want to go smoke-free but not sure where to start? Start here, with 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.
