The ban also prohibits smoking in areas up to 25 feet away from public housing units and administrative office buildings, according to a brochure from the department.

"HUD believes that allowing a PHA (public housing agency) to enforce its smoke free policy through lease enforcement actions is the best way to ensure compliance with such policies", the rules read.
