This project will evaluate what community stakeholders know about a new citywide ordinance that bans smoking in multi-unit housing (MUH) in Richmond, California. In this in-depth case study, we will use focus groups and one-on-one interviews to identify and document successes and challenges of implementing a smoke-free policy in multi-unit housing.
