Green and Healthy Homes Initiative

The Green and Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) works to eliminate inefficiencies in the delivery of health, safety, weatherization and energy efficiency programs to existing low and moderate-income housing through an integrated intervention process and promotion of collaborative efforts that appropriately braid federal, state, local, philanthropic and private sector investments.

With support from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, the Council on Foundations, the Funders Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities, the National Environmental Health Association, the White House Office of Recovery Implementation and over fifteen local and national foundations, GHHI is creating a national movement to improve the integrated delivery of housing interventions that create healthier, safer, more affordable and sustainable housing.
