Objective 1.1: Educate and engage a variety of housing partners on the background, the mechanics and legal aspects of adopting, implementing and enforcing smoke-free housing policies

Goal 2: Ensure that tobacco allies are aware of and can promote the smoke-free housing priorities to partners around the state.
