The Healthy Homes Program is a subprogram of the Lead Poisoning Prevention and Abatement Program. When ECDA staff visit your home for the lead inspection, they will also be inspecting for other environmental hazards eligible for fund from this program.

Environmental hazards in the home harm millions of children each year. The Healthy Homes Program addresses multiple childhood diseases and injuries in the home. The Initiative takes a comprehensive approach to these activities by focusing on housing-related hazards in a coordinated fashion, rather than addressing a single hazard at a time. This program builds upon the Lead Poisoning Prevention and Abatement Program expanding efforts to address a variety of environmental health and safety concerns including: mold, lead, allergens, asthma, carbon monoxide, home safety, pesticides, and radon.
