Smoke-Free Housing Press Release
        Toolkits help federally assisted housing managers to adopt smoke-free policies
Toolkits for Owners/Management Agents and Residents

These Smoke-Free Housing Toolkits are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Lung Association, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They are a compilation of existing educational, "how-to" and resource brochures, pamphlets and other information designed to assist owners/management agents and residents of public and assisted multi-family housing who want safer and healthier homes.

The contents of the two Toolkits differ based on the intended audience. Both toolkits contain information on health effects of smoking, a synopsis of the Surgeon General’s 2006 report of the harmful effects associated with exposure to secondhand smoke, Frequently Asked Questions, the HUD smoke-free housing Notices from the Offices of Public and Indian Housing and Multifamily Housing, a list of some Public Housing Authorities that have smoke-free policies, and a list of resources for more information. Other documents in the toolkits are audience-specific.

HUD thanks its partners in the process and the developers of the smoke-free housing materials for giving permission to use the documents in this publication.
