National Healthy Homes Month 2023
June is National Healthy Homes Month (NHHM), created by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH). The 2023 campaign theme is “Connecting Home, Health, and You.” The campaign’s aim is “to increase awareness of housing-related health hazards, lead poisoning prevention, and the overall principles of a healthy home, especially for low-income populations” and to “encourage residents to take the actions and steps for safe and healthy homes.”

On June 28, 2023, Join Us for the #NHHMchat
On June 28, the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) hosts its fifth annual National Healthy Homes Month-themed Twitter chat (#NHHMchat) to exchange ideas, spread awareness, and take action on home hazard prevention and implementing effective healthy homes policies. We’re again hosting the chat near the end National Healthy Homes Month to collect and amplify all the great healthy homes learning opportunities and resources that are shared throughout the month of June.
The 2023 #NHHMchat will be held Wednesday, June 28, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET (12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. PT). Registrants will receive the questions and other updates prior to the chat. Registrants may now sign up for the chat here.
The #NHHMchat aims to accomplish the following:
- Raise awareness of the importance of home assessments and their impact on health.
- Discuss resources for local government, communities, property owners, and residents.
- Encourage strategic partnerships, regulatory action, and policies that promote healthy homes and lead poisoning prevention.
To participate, follow along on June 28 when @NCHH posts questions starting at 3:00 p.m. ET. Share your thoughts and ideas on policies, data, practices, and resources for healthy homes.

Watch “Natural Allies: Partnering to Improve Health
and the Environment Through Housing”
This webinar was originally broadcast June 1, 2021. Watch it on YouTube.⠀
The leadoff webinar in HUD OLHCHH’s “The Power of Partnerships” series, Natural Allies, explored the reasons housing is often left out of conversations about improving our environment, what we can do about it, and why it matters for healthy housing. Major environmental groups have robust agendas related to climate change, clean water, and air quality; but, despite these common interests, they’re rarely in conversation or partnership with healthy housing practitioners. The panelists will identify opportunities for increased collaboration and discuss why it’s essential for advancing common goals related to the environment, healthy housing, health, and equity.
Presenters: Amanda Reddy, MS, Executive Director, National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH); Dan Chu, MS, Executive Director, Sierra Club Foundation; Surili Sutaria Patel, MS, Vice President, Metropolitan Group; and Tom Neltner, JD, CHMM, Chemicals Policy Director, Environmental Defense Fund.
