Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Housing
CLEAR THE AIR
Tobacco Free for a Healthy NJ (TFHNJ) works to increase opportunities for smoke-free living for all New Jersey residents by providing training and assistance to housing authorities, property managers, and landlords who want to transition their multi-unit housing complexes to smoke-free housing, reducing their costs and improving the health of their residents. We do this, in part, by:
- Distributing our Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Housing Toolkit for Landlords
- Providing technical assistance to housing authorities, landlords and property managers to facilitate the adoption of 100% smoke-free housing policies
- Promoting and highlighting smoke-free housing option through celebratory banners and TFHNJ’s Smoke-Free Housing Directory
NJPN provides free signage to public housing. To get smoke-free housing posters and other signage please click HERE to fill out an order form.
Legal Aspects of Smoke Free Housing Policies
This video is webinar presented by Michael Freiberg, Senior Staff Attorney fro the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium at the Public Health Law Center. The presentation covers the legal aspects of a smoke-free housing policy. Specifically Michael talks about the New Jersey Law, specifics of the HUD ruling, reasonable accommodation, cessation linkages, condos & public policy options. It finishes up with the resources that Tobacco Free for a Healthy NJ can provide to NJ Housing Authorities through funding from the New Jersey Department of Health, Office of Tobacco Control, Nutrition & Fitness.
Once you’ve transitioned your property into a smoke-free campus or building you can register with us to show renters that you are among others in the state that care about the health of their residents. Residents can search by county to find smoke-free housing.
