Event Description

HUD is Encouraging Home Owners and Agents to Establish Smoke-Free Policies. Get the Lowdown on How You Can Legally Establish and Implement Them!

Many reasons back the need to establish smoke-free housing. Most of them are concerned with protecting the health as well as safety of all people working and living in the housing and also because it is a major cost saving function. And also because secondhand smoke cannot be contained. HUD is also encouraging all the owners and agents to establish smoke-free policies and have issued two notices on this subject.

This session by expert speaker Debbie Hixon will help everyone learn where and how to begin with this effort of establishing and implementing smoke-free policies while being compliant with HUD.

You will also get a copy of the most recent HUD notice on smoke-free housing and an action guide to establish smoke-free housing in your community.

Session Highlights:

  • Can you deny occupancy to a smoker in a non-smoking building?
  • Can you ask an applicant if they smoke?
  • Should you add smoke-free policies to the House Rules?
  • Can you evict a resident for smoking in smoke-free housing?
  • What is the best way to initiate smoke-free housing?
