Buildings constructed under HUD housing programs must meet minimum property standards that protect occupants from health and safety risks and ensure the value of an FHA-insured home. Working cooperatively with state and local building officials, HUD is helping to prevent injuries and illnesses that result from such dangers as electric shock, carbon monoxide, residential fires, and lead-based paint. Visit HUD's healthy homes web site for more information.
