Review of Outcomes of HUD’s Healthy Homes Demonstration Grants

The HUD Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control awarded a task order contract to Healthy Housing Solutions to review the 48 HUD Healthy Homes Demonstration grants that were awarded from fiscal years 2005 to 2009 to capture results from those grants and to update the study that Solutions completed for HUD of its Healthy Homes Initiative Grant Program in 2007.

This latest review includes 25 Healthy Homes Demonstration grantees, including those using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Its purpose was to guide policy development and to facilitate HUD OLHCHH’s preparation of guidance documents for future healthy homes efforts. It summarizes data from those grantees that have carried out the greatest number of interventions, collected the most detailed evaluation data on cost, health and housing impacts, and have demonstrated significant capacity building and sustainable approaches to guide policy development and guidance for future healthy homes efforts. It also supports future efforts to identify evaluation data sets that would be of value to HUD OLHCCHH for additional analyses or meta-evaluation.
