The Erie Niagara Tobacco Free Coalition is leading an effort to see that landlords create 100% smoke-free environment for their tenants.
They are giving a $500 incentive to landlords who advertise smoke-free apartments.
ENTFC member Anthony Billoni says, "we feel there are lots of benefits to clean a non-smoker's apartment. Value of the property retains - also, zero-percent risk of damage from a lit cigarette."
He says interest is growing. They currently have 40 buildings in Erie and Niagara counties that have smoke-free policies. That's close to 2,000 apartments.
