HUD Healthy Homes Program Guidance Manual

In September 2011, Solutions completed development of the 274-page HUD Healthy Homes Program Guidance Manual, a document that provides evidence-based guidance for governments and nonprofits to build or expand their housing, and for public health programs related to residential environmental health and safety hazards. Suggested tools, techniques, and systems in this manual represent practices identified as effective, efficient, and realistic. The seven chapters mirror specific features of successful healthy homes programs and include coverage on Community Involvement in Program Planning, Program Design, Housing-Related Health and Safety Hazard Assessment, Intervention Strategies, Evaluation of Your Program’s Implementation, and Program Sustainability.
