June is National Healthy Homes Month
Everyone Deserves a Smokefree Home!
As part of National Healthy Homes Month, the CDC has released a feature article on smokefree policies for multi-unit housing, including tips and resources about smokefree housing policies.
Because more than 1 in 3 nonsmokers who live in rental housing are exposed to second hand smoke in the U.S., the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has proposed a rule that will require all public housing agencies to implement a smokefree policy.
