Breathe DC

Smokefree Housing

We're helping to create smokefree communities all over Washington.

Smokefree housing is healthier housing for all residents.

Breathe DC leads an innovative program to mobilize landlords, property managers and tenants in District of Columbia housing communities–including privately-owned properties, subsidized housing and DC Public Housing Authority properties–to create smokefree communities. We help properties develop and implement smokefree policies in their apartment communities. With our support, property managers and tenant groups identify and overcome obstacles to adopt smokefree policies.

Our Smokefree Places project supports owners and management teams to go smokefree at multi-unit properties, and empowers tenant groups to implement the best types of cessation intervention services, messaging and materials to advocate for implementation of smokefree policy in their housing. When funding allows, Breathe DC offers mini-grants to fund tenant-driven smokefree outreach campaigns in their apartment communities.

Smokefree housing delivers improved health and tobacco education for DC residents; an increase in the number of residents who quit smoking; and, a reduction in the negative effects of environmental tobacco smoke. Consequently, quitting smoking may be a great idea as it a healthier lifestyle choice. Correspondingly, you may want to use equipment and other tools to help you quit such as a vape pen.
