Register Today for the Health@Home Webinar Series – Summer and Fall 2020

Please find an invitation from HUD Exchange to participate in four training webinars that will provide healthy housing techniques, best-practices and guidelines for housing rehabilitation projects based on HUD’s Healthy Housing Principles.  These training webinars are intended for affordable housing developers and housing program managers interested in integrating healthy homes and/or energy retrofits with healthy principles in one or more projects.  The first webinar is on June 18th, and will focus on helping residents reduce exposure to contaminants, allergens, and pests by making sure homes are easily cleaned.

Healthy Housing Rehabilitation Guidelines

The Health@Home webinar series consists of four webinars that provide affordable housing rehabilitation specialists and program managers with information on integrating healthy housing techniques into their rehabilitation projects and best practices from practitioners who have successfully implemented these techniques. Register today!

HUD has developed a package of Health@Home guidelines that track the eight widely used Healthy Housing Principles plus an emerging ninth principle, Active Design. The guidelines translate these principles into workable property standards for local housing rehabilitation programs. Each webinar covers multiple Healthy Housing Principles and provides attendees with case studies or best practices on how to implement them. View the webinar series flyer!

Healthy housing has always been important but is especially important today, as communities across the United States continue to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Removing lead and other health hazards from housing is one of HUD’s five strategic goals and is an agency priority goal.

Attend all four webinars to receive a Health@Home certificate of completion! A small number of participants who complete the training will be eligible to receive on-call Technical Assistance (TA) in updating local rehabilitation standards or applying these practices to a specific rehabilitation project.
