SMOKE-FREE PUBLIC HOUSING AND MULTIFAMILY PROPERTIES

This website has resources to help you plan for, implement, and build support for smoke-free policies for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and Multifamily federally assisted properties. HUD strongly encourages Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and all multifamily housing owners/agents to implement smoke-free policies in all their properties. Furthermore, December 5, 2016, HUD published a final rule for each Public Housing Agency administering low-income, conventional public housing to initiate a smoke-free policy. The effective date of the Rule is February 3, 2017, and it provides an 18-month implementation period. All PHAs must have a smoke-free policy in place by July 31, 2018.
