April is National Healthy Homes Month

 

In 2024, we’re celebrating National Healthy Homes Month in April. This year’s theme MAKING AN IMPACT: Healthy, Safe, and Resilient Homes highlights the daily benefits and impacts of OLHCHH-funded programs in communities. 

 


Goals for National Healthy Homes Month (NHHM):   

  • Educate: Spread the word about Healthy Homes Principles. Use various ways to raise awareness about the impact of combining health, energy-savings, and safety in homes. Reach out to different groups and stakeholders, including those new to healthy homes.

  • Promote Grants: Increase awareness of OLHCHH grants and expand OLHCHH programs nationwide. 

  • Improve Standards: Support stakeholder awareness and access to lead and healthy homes standards, improving homes one by one.

  • Measure Impact: Gather and share data to understand and boost the impact of our programs on communities affected by lead and other home health hazards.

  • Build Networks:  Grow our influence through NHHM, connecting with more organizations and individuals.
