In November 2016, the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that public housing developments in the U.S. will soon be required to provide a smoke-free environment for their residents. With this new ruling comes a wave of individuals looking for tobacco cessation resources, including those with behavioral health conditions. Enactment of this rule presents a unique opportunity for behavioral health service providers to partner with public housing agencies (PHAs), housing owners and housing agents to assist tenants who want to quit smoking.
During this webinar, attendees will:
- Understand the new rule published by HUD requiring smoke-free facilities throughout Public Housing Agencies and MultiFamily federally assisted properties;
- Explore three models to support tobacco cessation that you can adopt based on your community; and
- Identify financing trends and other mechanisms to support this work.
