The Connecticut Green & Healthy Homes Project is designed to explore safer and more energy efficient housing as a platform for improved health outcomes through comprehensive, evidence based home interventions. These interventions will seek to generate substantial medical and energy cost savings through improved health outcomes related to asthma, lead poisoning, and household injury along with reductions in energy consumption. The goals of the project are to quantify the degree to which comprehensive housing interventions can cost-effectively produce healthier housing, and can result in energy and healthcare cost savings. The project looks to invest in housing interventions for low- and moderate-income families, and unlock sustainable funding from the health sector to fill the existing gap in resources for green and healthy homes across the state.
