HUD is funding studies to improve HUD's and the public's knowledge of housing-related health and safety hazards and to improve or develop new hazard assessment and control methods, with a focus on key residential health and safety hazards. HUD is especially interested in applications which will advance our knowledge on key healthy homes issues by addressing important gaps in the science related to the accurate and efficient identification of hazards and cost effective hazard mitigation. Key hazards are discussed in Appendix A, Key Residential Health and Safety Hazards, of this NOFA.
The overall goal of the Healthy Homes Technical Studies program is to advance the recognition and control of priority residential health and safety hazards and more closely examine the link between housing and health.
This Notice solicits Pre-Applications only. Top-ranked submissions will be invited to submit a full application for funding in response to a second announcement (Healthy Homes Technical Studies Programs Full-Application).
