Does your city or town have homes that could use weatherization or rehabilitation? Is your housing stock aging? Do you have challenges sometimes with finding enough contractors to do this type of work? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, take the Healthy Housing Local Action Challenge!
In partnership with the National Center for Healthy Housing, the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative, and ChangeLab Solutions, the Challenge provides a structured pathway and recognition for cities seeking to reduce home-based health hazards.
In response to feedback from cities and towns that have taken the Local Action Challenge, NLC is adding 3 new areas of focus, in addition to lead and asthma triggers:
- Workforce Capacity
Round 2 of the Local Action Challenge will continue to support cities’ goals of developing holistic and healthy communities. Join this session with city and community leaders, along with national partners, to be the first to access new resources and be recognized for implementing policies, programs, and practices to ensure safe, healthy housing through the Local Action Challenge.
Register to learn how your city can join the challenge to take action to improve health in your community and engage with housing practitioners nationwide through NLC.
