Minnesota Statutes were amended in 2014 to protect foster children from the effects of second-hand smoke by establishing smoke-free foster care home requirements.
This bulletin provides information about the safety risks of second-hand smoke, smoke-free child foster care home requirements, and provides a link to training on health risks of exposure to second-hand smoke.
Smoke-free child foster care requirements
Due to the risks of second-hand smoke, foster homes for children are required to provide a smoke-free environment in the following areas:
Inside the Home
Other enclosed spaces connected to the home, such as garage, porch or deck
Outdoors, when children are present.
Violation and training
If a foster parent does not provide a smoke-free environment for foster children, a placing agency must ask the foster parent to comply with a plan that includes training on the health risks of exposure to second-hand smoke. [Minnesota Statutes, section 260C.215, subdivision 9]
