“Change Is In The Air”
Smoke-Free Public Housing

      Sherman Housing Authority has successfully implemented the Smoke-Free Public Housing
Policy on December 17, 2014.   The U.S. Housing and Urban Development has now made it mandatory for all public housing developments in the United States to provide a smoke-free environment.
      Our current policy prohibits lit tobacco products in all living units, indoor common areas, administrative offices and all outdoor areas within 15 feet of housing and administrative office buildings.
       In order to comply with the new HUD regulations, our policy will be amended to 25 feet of said buildings. You will be notified when this change will go into effect. 
HUD’s new rule will enhance our original initiative to create healthier homes for all of our families and prevent devastating and costly smoke-related fires.
      THANK YOU for helping us take this progressive step.
