Donor Name: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
State: All States
County: All Counties
Type of Grant: Grant
Size of the Grant: $1,000,000
Grant Duration: 3 years
HUD, through this Healthy Homes and Weatherization Cooperation Demonstration (HHWCD) NOFO, is interested in supporting demonstrations in up to 5 communities that provide housing interventions in lower-income households that are conducted jointly through the coordination of HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH)-funded Healthy Homes Production (HHP) program and programs funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). A critical goal of this demonstration is to determine whether this coordinated delivery of services achieves cost-effectiveness and better outcomes in improving the safety and quality of homes, including health and energy efficiency. The coordinated assessments and interventions are expected to provide additional benefits to households through the combined mitigation of health and safety hazards and improvements in energy efficiency and comfort. These grants are intended to facilitate the leveraging of assets from both programs and support the exploration of different models of service delivery (e.g., recruitment strategies and partnerships).
Goals and Objectives
The following are the major goals and objectives of this NOFO:
- Demonstrate effective strategies for coordination between HUD’s HHP and DOE’s WAP programs that maximize program efficiencies and benefits to occupants.
- Reduce WAP deferrals through coordination with HHP programs.
- Demonstrate sustainable models of inter-program cooperation, including data sharing, reporting, and targeting/recruiting clients.
- Demonstrate effective models for the sustainable financing of coordinated healthy homes/weatherization interventions.
- Support the collection of data to evaluate the housing interventions conducted through inter program coordination (e.g., program cost efficiencies that can be achieved, improvements in indoor environmental quality, improved health outcomes, and additional safety benefits to households).
