Welcomes you to the First Annual National Healthy Homes Month 2016 webpage
HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) is coordinating the efforts of NHHM. Thanks to the support and collaborations with other federal agencies and partners; NHHM will provide a deliberate, coordinated and holistic approach to creating healthy and safe homes. Creating a holistic approach includes efforts to combine activities related to:
- Childhood lead poisoning prevention
- Residential asthma intervention
- Injury prevention
- Smoke free public housing
- Safe indoor pest control
- Radon Safety
- Disaster Recovery
The target audiences for the scope of activities are comprised of state and local government agencies, nongovernmental organization, nonprofit organizations, property owners and individual families especially those with small children.
Each week in June; NHHM will focus on the “Principals of Healthy Homes” and associated set of activities. The themes are designed to highlight the paired topics. When you get your activities planned consider letting us know about them! We would love to hear about the event planning and results.
