No family should have to choose between affordable and healthy housing. “Healthy homes” is a century-old concept that promotes safe, decent, and sanitary housing as a means for preventing disease and injury. Healthy housing is receiving considerable attention from public health professionals and policy-makers as a result of the wealth of scientific evidence linking health outcomes — such as asthma, lead poisoning, and unintentional injuries — to home health hazards.

The NCHH leads several initiatives:

  • To change national, state, and local policies to improve housing quality and health outcomes.
  • To increase funding for critical healthy housing programs at HUD, CDC, EPA, and more.
  • To eliminate lead poisoning in the United States.
  • To engage communities nationwide to take action on healthy housing.

Please join our efforts and take action for healthy housing today.

Initiatives

Through its advocacy campaigns and policy initiatives, the National Center for Healthy Housing provides information about federal, state, and local policy on healthy housing, illuminates the inadequacies of current policy, influences policy changes, and engages individuals nationwide working to secure healthy housing for all.

Current initiatives in which you can participate include:

National Safe and Healthy Housing Coalition

The National Safe and Healthy Housing Coalition is a broad, voluntary coalition of over 300 organizations working to improve housing conditions nationwide through education and outreach to key national stakeholders and federal public decision-makers. The Coalition promotes policies for safe and healthy housing in the United States with special emphasis on those who are disproportionately impacted.

Health and Housing Funders’ Forum

The Health and Housing Funders’ Forum fosters collaboration among philanthropic organizations to make a significant impact in the areas of healthy housing and healthy communities and seeks to re-envision housing so that it leads to better health for vulnerable populations. The Funders’ Forum is a non-dues-paying collaborative that provides its members with a range of opportunities, tools, and resources, such as webinars, peer networking, and conferences.

In support of these efforts, NCHH is a valuable resource provider for those working to increase healthy housing. NCHH offers a wide variety of data on the current state of healthy housing nationwide, information on federal and state legislation currently in place, details regarding proposed legislation and policy changes, and specific advocacy actions you can take to promote healthy housing.

Lead Poisoning in Flint

As the lead-in-water crisis in Flint, Michigan, continues to evolve, NCHH joins the nation in supporting the residents of Flint in their time of need. Resources must be marshalled as quickly as possible to ensure a safe water supply and provide follow-up services to address the long-term consequences of lead poisoning. We need to take the lessons from this crisis to improve our public policies so that no other communities have to experience what the residents of Flint are going through.

More Actions You Can Take


No family should have to choose between affordable and healthy housing. “Healthy Homes” is a century-old concept that promotes safe, decent, and sanitary housing as a means for preventing disease and injury.

Healthy housing is receiving considerable attention from public health professionals and policy-makers as a result of emerging scientific evidence linking health outcomes such as asthma, lead poisoning, and unintentional injuries to substandard housing.

There are more than 5.2 million substandard housing units nationwide. As a result, there is a growing need for preventing the public health problems stemming from these units. Even newer, more expensive homes may have hazards lurking within. Creating healthier housing promotes the healthy growth and development of children and has the potential to save billions in health care costs.
