Resident and Homeowner Resources
The U.S. Census estimates that more than 5.9 million housing units are substandard with multiple or severe health hazards and that 39 million housing units nationwide contain at least one health hazard. Some of these hazards may be seen (mold, dust, and pests; deteriorated lead paint or pipes) or unseen (electrical and physical hazards, radon, carbon monoxide, and other poisons and carcinogens) and can cause illness, injury, and even death. Fortunately, there are plenty of actions you can take to protect your family from these health hazards. The following resources will take you to brochures, fact sheets, and websites to help you understand the hazards in your home and what you can do to alleviate or eliminate their impacts.
