SNAP housing will go smoke-free

Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners will follow the lead of other low-income housing providers in the city by asking residents to not smoke in their properties beginning Aug. 1. Residents of SNAP’s 15 properties throughout the city will be asked to sign an addendum to their lease that requires all smoking to be done outdoors and at least 25 feet away from doors, windows and intake air vents. The ban includes cigarettes, cigars, marijuana and other tobacco products and seeks to reduce tenants’ exposure to secondhand smoke.
