HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) and USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) have an ongoing National Healthy Homes Partnership that is presenting a webinar series in support of National Healthy Homes Month (#NHHM2018).
The webinars support NHHM’s theme of Unlocking the Potential of America’s Children: Check Your Home-Protect Your Family. This theme focuses on the importance to protect current and future generations of children from the exposures to lead from contaminated paint, dust, and soil; through the importance of home assessments and the impact it has on your health.
