HUD Residents

Living in a smoke-free home is one of the best things you can do for your family’s health

As a result of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development federal rule, all housing authorities across the country are going smoke-free! This means that your housing authority in Louisiana will soon be smoke-free. Although the main focus of this change is to protect the health and safety of your children and neighbors, residents and staff may use this time to make a life long change and quit smoking for good.

Quit resources, also known as tobacco cessation resources, are treatments to help people quit tobacco use. These treatments can involve the combination of nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, medications and/or group and individual counseling.
