In September 2017, the American Cancer Society (ACS) hosted a Smokefree Public Housing Workshop in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The workshop was held for six state teams to help support the implementation of the new Smokefree Public Housing Rule.
The purpose of the workshop was to bring together state comprehensive cancer control programs, tobacco control programs and public housing authorities to develop collaborative action plans to support the implementation of the HUD rule in their states. To further support the teams as they implemented their plans, the American Cancer Society conducted a 12-month technical assistance (TA) program. This report summarizes the findings of the 2017 Smokefree Public Housing Workshop Follow-Up Technical Assistance Program.
