Hosted by NLC and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD)

All Americans, particularly vulnerable children, deserve healthy and hazard-free housing in order to thrive and reach their full potential. However, older housing stock containing lead, inadequate maintenance, and the toxic remnants of industrialization pose significant health threats in many cities.

The National League of Cities’ (NLC) Center for Leadership, Education, Advancement, and Development (LEAD) is hosting its “HUD Lead and Healthy Homes Action Planning Workshop” on May 17 in partnership with HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH). 

This virtual workshop will bring federal experts, local leaders, and practitioners together to offer insights, information, and resources to identify and control lead and other housing hazards, along with initial planning to support city leaders.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Understand programs and offerings available from the HUD Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes.
  • Identify local priorities and opportunities to improve health through housing.
  • Learn from experts about implementation pitfalls and challenges and how to avoid them.
  • Leave the workshop with the start of an action plan, local vision, and ideas for building your coalition.

HUD grants ensure cities, towns, and villages receive support and technical assistance as they seek cost-effective ways to address health and safety hazards in homes. During this workshop, HUD will share more information about their programs and offerings and will provide cities with guidance for building healthy homes programs locally.

HUD is eager to bring on new cities, towns, and villages in need of further support in building sustainable municipal-level programs, policies, and tools designed to safeguard healthy housing. We invite your city’s participation in this upcoming workshop.
