Healthy Homes Month 2023

June is Healthy Homes Month

This month, take action to create a safe and healthy living environment for children. Learn about the services that can help you keep your home safe and healthy by attending webinars, online chats or by applying for funding to make needed repairs.

Everyone deserves a healthy home

This year's National Healthy Homes Month focuses on the important relationship between housing quality and health. The goal is to raise awareness about the need to reduce costs for families by preventing injuries and illnesses, improving affordable housing options, and enhancing the quality of life for vulnerable populations.

Everyone desires good health and affordable medical and housing expenses. To ensure this opportunity is available to all Americans, we can all contribute to creating and maintaining healthy homes and communities. Every individual and organization has a role to play in promoting healthy homes for everyone.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) has a mission to help all Americans, particularly children and other vulnerable populations in low-income households, reach their full potential by ensuring safe and healthy living conditions. HUD's Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes initiatives aim to improve health outcomes by addressing housing conditions.

In summary, National Healthy Homes Month emphasizes the connection between housing and health. By addressing housing quality, we can improve the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. Collaborative efforts among individuals, organizations, and government agencies can lead to healthier homes and improved quality of life for everyone.
