Healthy Homes

Housing plays a central role in the health of our communities, particularly as the environmental health workforce works to help communities adapt and respond before, during, and after weather events like extreme heat, extreme cold, hurricanes, flooding, and wildfires, which are increasing in frequency and intensity.

Protecting Homes During Extreme Weather Webinar Series

This webinar series discusses high wind events (including hurricanes and their subsequent flooding) and their impact on homes. Topics of discussion included how local, state, and national organizations are working to ensure disaster survivors including households with low incomes, people experiencing homelessness, people with disabilities, and other marginalized communities have the resources they need to fully recover.
