Smoke Free Housing Information for Residents

family members drawing on paper together

Are you experiencing secondhand smoke coming into your home from another source in your apartment community? Even though only 29% of Nashville renters smoke, the home remains a leading source of secondhand smoke exposure, especially for children. If you live in multi-unit housing, you may be exposed even if no one smokes in your home and even if you do not smell smoke. There are, however, steps you can take to care for your family.

You and your family have the right to breathe easy. Speak to your landlord about going smoke-free.

Resident Toolkit

We encourage you to print and share these materials with neighbors. A change in policy will only occur if there is demand.
