Smokefree Multi-Unit Housing

A roadmap of policy options to protect tenants from secondhand smoke

Fact Sheet
Tobacco Prevention

Californians have extensive protections from exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke where they work, eat, and play, but many are still exposed to secondhand smoke where they live.

Landlords, property managers, and local governments can all help protect residents from drifting secondhand smoke by prohibiting smoking throughout multi-unit residences – and local governments can pass a variety of additional laws to help residents who suffer from exposure to secondhand smoke at home.

In collaboration with CA4Health, ChangeLab Solutions created an illustrated roadmap of the 8 policy options that can protect tenants from secondhand smoke, plus a companion brochure that breaks down the policy options even further.
