The purpose of the Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is to reduce or eliminate housing-related health hazards and to promote housing that is healthy, safe, affordable, and accessible. This program will address multiple hazards in homes and prevent diseases and/or injuries that result from housing-related hazards. Priority hazards, diseases and conditions, and high-risk populations should be determined based on programmatic data and other data sources (i.e. census, hospital admissions, or building/sanitary code violations by address). Special emphasis should be placed on populations who suffer disproportionately from housing-related disease. This funding addresses the “Healthy People 2020” focus areas of environmental health, public health infrastructure, and education and community-based programs.

Funds will be used to do the following:

  • Build a consortium of strategic partners to address unsafe and/or unhealthy housing conditions.
  • Assure follow-up care is provided for high-risk populations who are identified with housing-related health issues.
  • Develop a surveillance system that monitors blood lead levels, environmental test results, and healthy housing variables.
  • Develop a regulatory structure and enforcement process to prevent or control housing-related environmental health hazards.
