The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has received $200,000 in funding for the first year of a three-year grant award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the result of a highly competitive open grant competition focused on reducing public exposure to indoor pollutants.
The collaborative project will allow for three simultaneous technical assistance and support activities – business development, reimbursement, and an Asthma Outcome Metrics Working Group – and will allow GHHI to provide support to:
1) Develop and implement asthma home visiting programs that provide comprehensive environmental health services;
2) Increase Medicaid funding for these interventions; and
3) Convene and manage the Asthma Outcome Metrics Working Group to develop Environmental Management & Health Outcomes Metrics (EMHOME) system.

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has a well-earned reputation for delivering quality services to at-risk communities, developing innovative models for healthy homes policies and programs, and providing effective technical assistance nationally to state, county, and city governments. GHHI bridges the gaps that often prevent the coordination and cooperation between health, housing and environmental agencies at the city and state levels, nonprofit service providers and private investors.
GHHI does this in three distinct ways: 1) Delivering expert subject matter trainings; 2) facilitating meetings between city, county and statewide stakeholders; and 3) working hand-in-hand and on-the-ground within cities to implement the proven GHHI Model for integrated home interventions.
