Smoke Free Housing

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) now requires smoke-free housing, which bans the use of prohibited tobacco products in all CDA living units, indoor common areas, and CDA administrative office buildings. This rule improves indoor air quality in housing; benefits the health of CDA housing residents, visitors, and CDA staff; reduces the risk of catastrophic fires; and lowers overall maintenance costs.

Medicaid covers the cost of tobacco cessation services and prescription smoking cessaton medications for recipients. Residents also have access to "quitlines," which are free evidence-based cessation services that residents can access by calling 1-800-QUITE-NOW, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Wisconsin Tobacco QuitLine
