The Tribal Healthy Homes Center is pleased to announce that our Rapid Response Technical Assistance is now up and running. Visit the Technical Assistance page to learn more about this valuable resource.
Funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
National Tribal Healthy Homes
Assessment, Training & Technical Assistance
is a program of Montana State University Extension,
Housing and Environmental Health Program.
The NTHHSC is an exciting new partnership of tribal interests. The Center will strengthen the capacity of tribal communities to assess homes for indoor health hazards such as: mold and moisture, carbon monoxide, household chemicals, drinking water, lead, asbestos, pesticides, radon, dust and dust mites, allergens, asthma triggers, and fire and safety hazards, and septic systems.
To build capacity, training and technical assistance will
be offered to all tribes and Alaskan Natives.
Healthy Homes assessment training opportunities will be promoted to Indian Housing Programs, Sanitarians, IHS Health Educators, Tribal Colleges , and other interested community agencies. To accommodate as many tribal communities as possible, nine multi-day, regional, Healthy Homes trainings are being planned. The individuals receiving the training will be able to take the
information to enhance their Healthy Homes
assessments and educational capacity.
