Smoke-Free Public Housing Compliance and Enforcement Toolkit
Thoughtful planning and preparation before and during the implementation of a smoke-free policy will improve compliance and reduce the need for enforcement. If you have questions not answered below contact Live Smoke Free.
A majority of property managers report that a smoke-free policy is largely well followed and self enforced by residents and staff. However, it is not uncommon for a small minority of residents to struggle or refuse to comply by continuing to smoke or allowing their guests to smoke on the property. The resources and tools below can assist management in promoting compliance and enforcing the policy when necessary. If you would like to consult on solutions specific to your situation, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
