Healthy Homes for Healthy Kids Campaign

HUD is conducting the national "Healthy Homes for Healthy Kids" campaign, an outreach effort to inform parents about health and safety hazards in the home.

This can include lead paint, mold, moisture, and pests like mice and cockroaches. The objective of the campaign is to increase awareness of the relationship between the indoor environment and health; identify potential treatment methods to address housing-related hazards that adversely impact health and provide information about local resources at each venue.

The goal of the campaign is to make the community more aware of the connection between health and the home environment and to educate participants aware of available programs and enroll eligible participants on-site.
