The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has received $200,000 in funding for the first year of a three-year grant 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.
