Resources: A Strategy for Action to Advance Healthy Housing
On Monday, February 4th, the federal Healthy Homes Work Group (HHWG) launched the new Advancing Healthy Housing: A Strategy for Action. The Strategy lays out the goals and priorities of the HHWG to advance healthy housing initiatives for the next three to five years. The development of a comprehensive national strategy for improving the nation's housing stock, especially those homes occupied by families who may not be able to afford such improvements, across federal agencies is a critical step in the evolution of Weatherization Plus Health. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Office of Multifamily Housing also released its new radon testing and mitigation requirements for Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-insured multifamily mortgage applications for new construction and significant rehabilitation, and certain FHA-insured refinancing programs.
