About Rebuild Healthy Homes
The Rebuild Healthy Homes application was developed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH), which provides funds to state and local governments to develop cost-effective ways to reduce lead-based paint hazards. In addition, the office enforces HUD's lead-based paint regulations, provides public outreach and technical assistance, and conducts technical studies to help protect children and their families, and others, from health and safety hazards in the home.
The app is designed to supplement OLHCHH’s publication, Rebuild Healthy Homes, which is available to download for free within the Rebuild Healthy Homes app. The app better informs users on the essentials of healthy homes for indoor residential environments, for post natural disaster restoration of homes. Information covers the principles and technical aspects of the safe and proper response and removal of mold, radon, asbestos, lead, and other hazards and unsafe conditions.
The application and accompanying guide provide a vast array of resources and information for consumers and “DIY”-ers. They also focus on useful criteria for volunteers, professionals, and others involved in the restoration process after a natural disaster. The Rebuild Healthy Homes application serves as a “how-to” guide while incorporating healthy homes principles and concepts.
