HUD Secretary’s Awards for Healthy Homes

Healthy housing is at the core of strong, vibrant families and communities. HUD partners with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) in a common vision to create healthier home environments in the United States by working across the health, environment, and housing sectors. The activities or policies nominated must show measurable benefits/impact in the health of low income residents. The detailed criteria for judging applications were described in the application materials.
