Healthcare Reform and Healthy Homes
The landmark healthcare reform bill passed in 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, launched three new programs of importance to the healthy homes community. Each offers state and local government agencies and nonprofits an opportunity to implement healthy homes programming as part of a broader community health initiative. The time is now to connect with your national organizations, state government health leaders, and partners from other agencies, because federal and state agencies are actively deciding which new and existing health programs will receive these new federal funds.
