Healthy Homes
Healthy Homes is a comprehensive approach to combat disease and injury in the home driven by scientific evidence that links substandard housing and poor health. Healthy Homes interventions take a holistic approach to coordinated mitigation of housing-related hazards, rather than addressing a single hazard at a time. This method allows Healthy Homes practitioners to address a wide array of health and safety issues, including lead poisoning, asthma (exacerbated by moisture, mold, and pests), exposure to radon and other toxic chemicals, and injury caused by old or dilapidated housing among myriad others. Healthy Homes funding is provided by several federal agencies including the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Weatherization Plus Health: A National Effort for Local Healthy Homes Collaboration

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Plus Health initiative is a national effort to enable the comprehensive, strategic coordination of resources for energy, health, and safety in low-income homes. The National Association of State Community Services Programs (NASCSP) is implementing the project on behalf of DOE. Weatherization Plus Health will ensure energy efficient and healthy indoor environments by facilitating the establishment of strong, effective partnerships between Grantees of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and providers of healthy homes services.
