Today, more and more properties - from market rate housing to public housing - are going smoke-free. That's because a smoke-free property is legal, healthy, safe and cost effective. The Tobacco Control Program has produced a toolkit to help landlords make their Vermont properties smoke-free.
The toolkit helps landlords understand the rules for different property types and details steps to create, implement and enforce a smoke-free policy.
Smoke-free housing toolkit resources
The toolkit offers resources for landlords to download and use as they transition their property(s) smoke-free.
The Smoke-Free Housing Fact Sheet is for property owners, landlords and property managers who are interested in exploring a smoke-free policy for their multi-unit buildings.
Surveys can help landlords to gather ideas, determine what areas to cover in a policy and help residents feel involved from the start.
