Affordable housing providers join smoke-free trend

April 28, 2011

Public Health Press Release

Affordable housing providers join smoke-free trend

KING COUNTY, WA — Nine King County housing providers — including Seattle Housing Authority, King County Housing Authority, and Housing Resources Group — are developing no-smoking policies for their properties. The clean air transition will benefit residents living in more than 9,000 units across King County.

“This is a major achievement and public health success that will ensure more families have access to safe and healthy living environments,” said Dow Constantine, King County Executive. “Everyone deserves to breathe smoke-free air where they live. Policies like these are an excellent example of how partnerships between local government, housing providers, and other community-based organizations can promote a healthier King County.”
