Latest Action Letter (June 2021)
The National Safe and Healthy Housing Coalition (NSHHC) is requesting signatures to support appropriation requests and advocate for healthy housing programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have further demonstrated the connection between housing quality and health outcomes, how these impacts disproportionately affect specific populations including communities of color and low-income communities, and the necessity of investing in addressing healthy housing hazards and poor housing quality. It is now more important than ever to advocate for federal programs that work to protect children and others from housing-related health hazards.
These letters will be circulated to the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate and include funding asks of $175 million for CDC Center for Environmental Health programs, $606 million for HUD Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Programs, and $100 million for EPA programs.
Your signature will help to advocate for increased funding for these vital programs that protect children and others from housing-related health hazards and that support healthy housing.
