CHHC Members Recognized for Innovations in Healthy Housing Policy

HUD Award            CHHC HUD Award - web    

On behalf of CHHC, Regional Asthma Management and Prevention (RAMP) was awarded the HUD Secretary's Award for Healthy Homes for Innovations and Acheivement in Public Policy.  The award honors our track record in state policy solutions to local housing challenges, including:

  • Making California the first state in the nation to add visible mold as an enforceable substandard housing condition.
  • Providing all jurisdictions in the state with the authority to require landlords to address pest infestations.
  • Requiring those cited for a pest infestation to also address any underlying substandard housing condition that contributes to the infestation.
  • Ensuring tenants are provided notificatoin about pesticide use by landlords.  

CHHC members could not have accomplished these policy wins without strong partners, including California State Senators Ben Hueso and Holly Mitchell, who championed these issues in the legislature.  RAMP and CHHC are also grateful to the Kresge Foundation for supporting our healthy housing efforts since 2011.

A big congratulations to all our members!

Priorities

CHHC members address healthy housing from multiple perspectives. As a result, the coalition’s priorities represent a comprehensive approach towards achieving healthy housing for all. CHHC organizes itself into three workgroups focused on the following priorities:

  • Code Enforcement – addressing substandard housing conditions, including pest infestations and mold, through modifications to code and improvements to code enforcement practice

  • Green, Healthy, and Affordable Housing – ensuring that green building is both healthy and accessible at all income levels

  • Healthy Housing Indicators – creating evidence-based criteria for healthy housing

Dates:        March 26th 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m

Mission

The mission of CHHC is to provide leadership to promote healthy, safe, energy efficient, and affordable housing for all residents in California. The coalition’s diverse membership, including housing rights and social justice organizations, public health advocates, local, state, and federal government agencies, and other experts on housing, indoor air quality, and health, comes together to provide resources, expertise, and advocacy for statewide policies to promote and protect healthy housing, with particular attention on low income communities and communities of color.
