HUD INVITES COMMENTS ON SMOKE-FREE POLICIES

Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 7:00AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today invited comments on how it can continue to support the implementation of smoke-free policies for both public housing and multifamily housing. Specifically, HUD is seeking information on best practices and practical strategies from housing providers who have implemented smoke-free policies, ideas for overcoming potential obstacles to implementing these policies, and advice for supporting housing providers and residents that are transitioning to smoke-free housing. The notice also requests input from housing providers that have decided not to implement a smoke-free policy and others who may have been affected by that decision. HUD plans to use this information to develop additional guidance for owners and managers who wish to implement smoke-free policies. Comments must be received by Nov. 5, 2012.
