3,850 Residents Now Free of Second-Hand Smoke in Their Dakota County Homes

In 2011, Dakota County reported that before SHIP, little outreach was done to Dakota County multi-unit housing properties to encourage or support adoption of smoke-free policies. Through SHIP, approximately 1,100 Dakota County landlords and building managers and 40,000 community members have been educated about the benefits of smoke-free buildings and the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.
