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:


New Resource: IPM in Rental Housing

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the most effective and least harmful way to address pests.  By addressing the root causes of pest problems, IPM serves as a long term solution to pest problems that advoids the costly, routine pesticide applications commonly used in rental housing.  To encourage more property owners to adopt IPM and a more effective and healthier alternative to routine spraying on their rental properties, CHHC members members developed a series of short videos to encourage landlords to transition to the use of Integrated Pest Management.  Videos include:

 In addition to the videos, our IPM webpage has a wide range of resources to help landlords and property managers make the transition.
