PIH’s Smoke-Free Public Housing Rule was finalized on December 5, 2016, and became effective February 3, 2017. All PHAs must comply with the rule and implement smoke-free policies within 18 months of the effective date, no later than July 31, 2018. The elimination of second hand smoke that can migrate between public housing units can be an important step towards improving the health of residents as well as reducing maintenance costs for PHAs.
PIH is working to provide additional smoke-free resources. If you have specific questions related to smoke-free public housing, please send an email to SmokeFreePublicHousing@hud.gov.
