About Us


Welcome to our virtual booth!  Thank you for stopping by. 

Please take a moment to review our information that is included in the Digital Welcome Bag.  

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) is committed to providing safe and healthy homes for all families and children by addressing housing conditions that threaten the health of residents, coordinating disparate health and housing agendas, supporting key research, targeting reinforcement efforts, and providing tools to build sustainable local programs that mitigate housing-related health hazards. 

OLHCHH also provides funds to state and local governments to develop cost-effective ways to reduce lead-based paint hazards; provides public outreach and technical assistance; and conducts technical studies to help protect children and their families from health and safety hazards in the home. Check out our newest publications for American Indian and Alaska Native communities.  Outreach materials and publications can be viewed and downloaded at https://www.hud.gov/program_of...
