About the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) is a 501(c)3 entity with the mission of breaking the link between unhealthy housing and unhealthy families. GHHI supports housing, environmental health, and energy efficiency services for families in communities around the country, as well as conducting direct services in Maryland. GHHI’s delivery model is based on its data-driven philosophy that public and private social investments are optimized and social program outcomes are maximized when the energy, health and safety needs of an occupied home are addressed comprehensively, efficiently and simultaneously.

About the Policy and Innovation Team

GHHI’s Policy and Innovation team works with stakeholders across the country (currently 20+ active projects) to develop and sustain programs that address healthy homes issues such as lead poisoning prevention, asthma trigger reduction, injury prevention, energy efficiency, and weatherization—many of which are shown to have a positive return on investment from reduced medical utilization and social benefits. As today’s healthcare system increases its attention and resources to community-based prevention and addressing the social determinants of health, the Policy and Innovation team is exploring cutting-edge solutions that bridge the gap between healthcare and healthy homes services. The team works with policy makers, healthcare providers, healthcare payers, local agencies, and service providers in advancing healthcare reform and translating policies to sustainable funding for program delivery in our nation’s most vulnerable communities.
