State Healthy Housing Profiles

The home is the most dangerous place for U.S. families. Nearly six million families live in housing rivaling that of developing countries, with broken heating and plumbing, holes in walls and windows, roach and rodent infestation, falling plaster, crumbling foundations, and leaking roofs. Millions more in all 50 states live in housing with serious health and safety hazards, including mold, exposed wiring, radon, unvented heaters, toxic chemicals, broken stairs, missing smoke detectors, and other hazards. Home‐based interventions to address health hazards improve health and have a large return on investment: Each dollar invested in lead paint hazard control results in a return of $17–$221, and each dollar invested in asthma home‐based interventions that include education and remediation results in a return of $5.30 to $14.00.

State-Specific Healthy Housing Fact Sheets
NCHH is creating brand new fact sheets for each of the 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and a sheet for the U.S. as a whole. Each sheet contains embedded hyperlinks to the reference source materials. A spreadsheet containing all the resources is available upon request.
