No smoking policy for federally-owned housing takes effect in July

In November 2016, the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a final rule requiring local public housing agencies (PHAs) to adopt smoke-free policies for federally-owned housing by July 2018. This aligns with HUD’s mission to provide safe, sanitary housing for vulnerable populations and improve the health outcomes of public housing residents.
