In a move aimed at providing healthier homes, HUD unveiled a smoke-free housing tool kit for property owners. The toolkit includes information to implement a no-smoking policy and a sample resident survey.The information can used by any multifamily owner or landlord whether they operate federally assisted housing or private market-rate apartments, said Sandra Henriquez, HUD assistant secretary for public and Indian housing. Since 2009, HUD has been urging public housing authorities (PHAs) to adopt smoke-free building policies. More than 300 agencies, approximately 10 percent of all PHAs in the country, have done so, according to Henriquez.
