PHA Smoke-free Transition Town Hall Meetings – Friday, March 23, 2018

PHA Smoke-Free Transition

On July 30, 2018, the PHA will be going smoke-free in all units, community spaces and any area shared by residents. In addition, you will not be able to smoke within 25 feet of any PHA owned buildings (family housing) or within 40 feet of any PHA owned buildings (senior housing).

Nothing in the policy or the PHA’s transition to smoke-free housing has changed; however, PHA staff will be hold another round of resident meetings if you still have questions or if you would like to learn more about PHA partnered cessation programs. If you would like to quit smoking, we can help!

The meeting schedule is below:
