Two years since the Schenectady Municipal Housing Authority (SMHA) implemented a smoke-free policy for its senior developments, the Capital District Tobacco-Free Coalition (CDTFC) announced that a recent survey shows that the policy is helping residents smoke less and is well-liked by a majority of residents.

“It’s gratifying to see that the no-smoking policy is beginning to create healthier homes for our residents,” stated Richard Homenick, executive director of SMHA. “While there is certainly room for improvement, we know that we have the support of residents to continue to work toward 100 percent smoke-free buildings.”
