National Healthy Housing Policy Summit

NCHH and the Alliance for Healthy Homes hosted the National Healthy Housing Policy Summit in Washington, DC, on May 7, 2009. The summit brought together a roundtable of leading organizations and experts in housing, public health, and environmental policy; housing finance, construction, codes, rehabilitation, management; green building, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and environmental health; and tenant rights, homeownership, and community organizing. This meeting resulted in the creation of the National Safe and Healthy Housing Coalition.

The Summit was a collaboration of several key national partner organizations and was supported generously by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Home Depot Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America.
