Healthy Housing Rehabilitation Guidelines

The Health@Home webinar series consisted of four webinars that provided 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.

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 covered multiple Healthy Housing Principles and provided attendees with case studies or best practices on how to implement them.

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.

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

Training Objectives

This training series enabled participants to:

  • Become familiar with the Health@Home guidelines
