The memorandum signed by Benjamin Metcalf, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Multifamily Housing Programs, provides specific steps for owners and management agents who choose to implement a smoke-free policy.  Additionally, HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) has published a Smoke-Free Action Guide entitled “Change is in the Air – An Action Guide for Establishing Smoke-Free Public Housing and Multifamily Properties”.  The purpose of the guide is to further educate PHAs and owners and management agents of subsidized or market rate multifamily housing about the benefits of smoke-free policies and recommended best practices to follow for implementing smoke-free policies. 

The guide is available for download from the Healthy Homes website at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/healthy_homes or directly at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=SMOKEFREEACTIONGUIDE.pdf.  Hard copies of the guide can be requested vie email to Smokefreehousing@hud.gov.
