Healthy Housing State Policies

Private residential housing, where most people spend their time, has very few requirements designed to protect the health of the people living there. Through a mix of state and local construction requirements, housing policies, building codes and consumer rights, certain jurisdictions do provide some level of protection. But no state has a healthy housing law on its books.

This webinar will discuss the impacts of housing policy on the public’s health, with a review of healthy housing concerns, the limited federal requirements, various state and local provisions related to healthy housing, and efforts to refine codes to better protect public health needs.
