No Smoking Policy

For the health and safety of our residents, smoking is not allowed anywhere in our public housing communities.

After taking into consideration resident feedback on a smoking policy and the health and safety risks associated with allowing smoking in housing, Home Forward adopted a no smoking policy at all of its public housing properties as of August 1, 2009.

Our no smoking policy applies to all residents, guests, visitors, service personnel and employees. This policy prohibits smoking in the following areas on all Home Forward public housing properties.

Smoking is prohibited within all residential apartments.

Smoking is prohibited in all interior common areas, including but not limited to:

  • community rooms
  • community bathrooms
  • lobbies
  • reception areas
  • hallways
  • laundry rooms
  • reception areas
  • stairways
  • offices
  • elevators

Smoking is prohibited within 10 feet of all buildings, including but not limited to:

  • entryways
  • porches
  • balconies
  • patios

If you have any further questions about the no smoking policy, please contact a public housing leasing office for more information.
