  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch (HHLPPB) recognizes the need to address housing related issues, including lead exposure, in a more comprehensive manner. The HHLPPB also recognizes a need to provide guidance to an increasing number of state, tribal, territorial, and local Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs (CLPPPs) as they expand into Healthy Homes programs. This guidance seeks to assist CLPPPs and other agencies involved in health or housing issues in developing a comprehensive Healthy Homes program.

    Healthy People 2020 is a national health agenda that envisions a society in which all people live long and healthy lives. A Healthy Homes program addresses Goal Two of that agenda: achieve health equity and eliminate health disparities. Healthy Homes also addresses eight proposed Healthy People 2020 Environmental Health objectives:

    • Reduction of the proportion of occupied housing units that have moderate or severe physical problems,

    • Reduce blood lead levels in children,

    • Reduce indoor allergen levels,

    • Increase the proportion of persons living in homes at risk that have an operating radon mitigation system,

    • Increase the number of new homes constructed with radon-reducing features, especially in high-radon-potential areas,

    • Increase the proportion of persons living in pre-1978 housing that has been tested for the presence of lead-based paint hazards,

    • Decrease the number of U.S. homes that have lead-based paint or related hazards, and

    • Increase the number of Territories, Tribes, States, and the District of Columbia that monitor diseases or conditions that can be caused by exposure to environmental hazards.
