Smoke-Free Housing Advocates and Smoke-Free Multi-Housing

Many people are interested in smoke-free housing. If you work for a public health organization, legal resource center, social service organization, or educational institution, here are some reasons why smoke-free housing policies benefit our communities.

If you want to learn how your organization can work with Live Smoke Free to promote smoke-free multi-housing, please contact us.

Minnesota Technical Assistance

The Association for Nonsmokers MN, Live Smoke Free’s parent organization, received a Tobacco Free Communities Technical Assistance grant from the Minnesota Department of Health to support grantees in Minnesota working on smoke-free housing initiatives.

Through this project, Live Smoke Free can provide assistance with:

  •   Consultations
  •   Program development materials
  •   Educational and training resources

 National Technical Assistance

In 2011, Live Smoke Free received a Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) Mentoring grant from the Minnesota Department of Health to provide training and technical assistance to health professionals working on smoke-free housing around the country.

Through this project, Live Smoke Free:

  •  Presented a nine-part webinar series called “Stages of Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Housing Program Development.”
  • Created a training manual entitled “Developing a Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Housing Program: A Guide for Tobacco Control Professionals.”

In 2018, Live Smoke Free received a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support public housing agencies nationwide with the implementation of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's "Instituting Smoke-Free Public Housing" rule. Live Smoke Free partnered with the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials and the National Alliance of Resident Services in Affordable and Assisted Housing to create Clean Air for All: The Smoke-Free Public Housing Project.
