Register Today: Health@Home Webinar Series – Summer and Fall 2020
Healthy Housing Rehabilitation Guidelines
Registration is open for the remaining classes in the series. Register today!
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.
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.
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.
This training series will enable participants to:
Become familiar with the Health@Home guidelines
Design and implement rehabilitation programs that integrate Healthy Housing Principles
Update rehabilitation standards to include healthy housing measures
Who Should Attend?
This training is 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.
