A home is a centerpiece of American life, the place where people live, grow, play, and learn. The presence of environmental hazards in homes such as lead and mold jeopardize the health and well-being of millions of people throughout the South and across the nation. Learn about the connection between home hazards and health and how you can help residents in your community avoid illnesses that keep them from work and school. Explore how you can improve health and well-being in your area by participating in the Housing, Hazards, and Health Regional Convening on Wednesday, April 15 in Charleston, SC

Join the National League of Cities (NLC), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes, and peers from other communities in the region to discuss strategies that overcome common barriers to achieving healthy and safe housing for all. 

Take a quick trip to Birmingham and:

  • Advance your knowledge: Gain a better understanding of the connection between hazardous housing conditions and public health issues.
  • Learn best practices: Hear examples of municipalities (small and large) that have achieved success and take-home resources that will help you implement effective strategies in your community.
  • Expand your reach: Meet with other city officials, staff, and thought leaders who can support your leadership agenda and develop peer relationships to expand your network.
