Leveraging Cross-sectoral Partnerships to Advance the Implementation of Smoke-Free Public Housing
April 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Smoke-free multiunit housing benefits residents and property owners alike. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recognized these advantages and designed a rule requiring every U.S. public housing agency to implement a smoke-free policy by July 2018. To this end, local health departments have a role in working with housing agencies and public housing owners to implement and promote the smoke-free housing policies.
Join us for the first of two webinars this month on Smoke-free Public Housing, hosted by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). Learn about the second webinar here.
Register to learn more about how local health departments can engage in cross-sectoral collaborations and leverage resources to advance smoke-free multiunit housing in communities. Three local health departments will share how they developed partnerships with local stakeholders and how they engaged residents to become smoking cessation leaders in their community housing units.
