The study aims are:
Aim 1): Identify adaptations for a smokefree housing implementation framework and identify opportunities to integrate these adaptations with ongoing behavioral health support, to meet the needs of residents living in Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) (Phase 1).
Aim 2): The research team will pilot test the adapted implementation framework, including an implementation toolkit, to assess the acceptability, feasibility and effectiveness of the primary intervention provided to Property Managers (Phase 2).
Aim 3): Based on a synthesis of qualitative and quantitative evidence, the research team will further refine the smokefree implementation framework and toolkit, comprising modified versions of the "Implementation Guide", "Action Plan" and "Implementation Checklist", to support future needs of Permanent Supportive Housing communities (Phase 3).
The research team seeks to use the opportunity provided by smokefree housing implementation to minimize indoor smoking and encourage smoking cessation, and thus help move communities with a history of profound health disparities towards a more equitable, tobacco-free future. The impact of this project will be evident not only among smokers, but also non-smokers, children and the elderly who share residential communities with people supported by PSH programs.
If successful, the results of this work will be used to promote broader and more effective use of the smokefree PSH implementation framework in federally-assisted public and affordable housing communities nationally.

All participants will receive the intervention of the Smokefree Implementation Framework and Toolkit
Behavioral: Smokefree Implementation Framework and Toolkit
Framework and toolkit that includes "Implementation Guide", "Action Plan", and "Implementation Checklist" that supports the needs of Permanent Supportive Housing communities.
- Acceptability of Intervention Measure (AIM) [ Time Frame: Pre-intervention through 6 months post intervention ]The Smokefree Implementation Framework and Toolkit is acceptable to implement in Permanent Supportive Housing communities. Measured using 4-items from the AIM.
- Feasibility of Intervention Measure (FIM) [ Time Frame: Pre-intervention through 6 months post intervention ]The Smokefree Implementation Framework and Toolkit is feasible to implement in Permanent Supportive Housing communities. Measured using 4-items from the FIM.
- Ambient second-hand smoke in common indoor areas [ Time Frame: Pre-intervention through 6 months post intervention ]Monitored using passive nicotine dosimetry monitors placed in common areas
- Residents' self-reported exposure to secondhand smoke [ Time Frame: Pre-intervention through 6 months post intervention ]Self-reported exposure to secondhand smoke (smell or sight) in the home or around the property, will be assessed with two questions in survey form.
- Behavior of residents who smoke [ Time Frame: Pre-intervention through 6 months post intervention ]Self-reported behavior of smoking (cigarettes/day in the past 30 days) of residents who smoke
