Community Organizations and Smoke-Free Multi-Housing

If you work for a community or health organization, housing provider, legal resource center, or other organization, we hope you will find the information for landlords and tenants useful. You can also read our fact sheet on why smoke-free multi-housing policies are good the community.

Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) Project

Live Smoke Free received a grant to provide training, technical assistance, and mentoring to Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) grantees and any other health professionals working on smoke-free multi-housing around the country.

To learn about the resources we can offer, including individual consultations/technical assistance, webinars, site visits, and materials, visit our CPPW resource page.

For Owner-Occupied Residents and Associations

If you live in a condominium, town home, co-op, common interest community, or other sort of owner-occupied unit, you may find much of our information useful. Information on secondhand smoke, research on smoke drift, and the benefits of smoke-free policies are similar for renters and unit-owners.

However, be aware that many legal issues and remedies are different for owner-occupied units and the legal information presented on this web site is for tenants in rented units. Live Smoke Free has recently completed research and developed fact sheets specifically for legal issues surrounding owner-occupied units. The Tobacco Control Legal Consortium has also wrriten Legal Options for Condominium Owners Exposed to Secondhand Smoke.

Residents and association members of owner-occupied units can contact Live Smoke Free to learn some strategies to creating a smoke-free building.
