HUD OIG is reviewing HUD’s efforts to achieve quality and safer public housing.  On December 5, 2016, HUD finalized a rule requiring all public housing agencies to implement a smoke-free policy by July 30, 2018.  The review objective was to determine whether HUD ensured that the public housing agencies complied with the implementing guidance of HUD’s smoke-free policy requirements in public housing programs.
