The Alaska Smokefree Housing Partnership is working to eliminate secondhand smoke from the air you breathe by advocating for Smokefree Policies in public/ private/ tribal multi-unit housing, condos and single units, and to develop a statewide network to support citizens in living in smokefree environments. Some of our strategies include working with landlords, and providing education and outreach.
Although a small percentage of Alaskan renters currently live in a smokefree environment, many would prefer to do so. Therefore, Alaska Smokefree Housing Partnership has chosen these goals:
To educate Landlords, Public Housing Authorities, Alaska Native Housing Authorities, Community Leaders and Health Professionals as to the advantages of Smokefree Housing.
To provide Landlords with resources and materials to implement a smoke-free policy.
To educate and assist renters who are having issues with Secondhand Smoke exposure in their rental units.
Call 1.888.474.4635 or email us and we’ll send you a useful packet of sample smokefree housing policies and information for multiple housing units, tenants and landlords.
