Adopting a Smoke-Free Building Policy for Affordable Housing
In 2016, HUD announced a rule requiring all public housing to adopt smoke-free policies by July 30, 2018. The rule restricts the use of prohibited tobacco products including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and hookah. Use of these products is not allowed anywhere inside public housing buildings including individual units, common areas, offices, or within 25 feet of the building(s).
