Project Funder: Anonymous Donor

Project Partners: Boston Public Health Commission, the Boston Housing Authority, Department of Neighborhood Development, and the Boston Inspectional Services Department

Project Description: Low-income families, property owners, and housing developers confront a complex and fragmented system for addressing housing-related health issues. NCHH joined an array of Boston-based partners to develop and promote a “one-touch” service across city lead, asthma, and injury programs. In addition, NCHH delivered training to public and nonprofit agency staff and developed tools such as the Healthy and Green Guide for Affordable Housing and the Healthy and Green Maintenance Manual.
