Nearly ten years since the inception of the Healthy Homes program in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control (OHHLHC), the Office is in the process of evaluating progress, distilling lessons learned, and forging a new strategic direction. This new direction will incorporate these lessons, without abandoning the Office’s core mission to ensure that lead poisoning is eliminated as a major childhood disease. With an established lead hazard control program infrastructure and the most comprehensive national healthy homes program, HUD is in a unique position to continue to promote national efforts to reduce housing-related health hazards.
