Live Smoke Free offers free materials for property owners and managers who want to make their building and/ or property in Minnesota smoke free, renters who want to talk to their property managers and neighbors about creating a smoke-free building, and anyone who is interested in learning more about the issue of smoke-free housing.

For smoke-free housing programs who are inspired by our work, we ask that you contact us prior to reproducing, modifying or sharing our work, and that you credit us for the initial creation of these resources; we are very proud of the hardwork and creativity that went into making these resources.
