  Due to the overwhelming response, this program is not accepting applications at this time.

Partner Agencies:
County of Summit Department of Community and Economic Development Weatherization (HWAP) Program; Rebuilding Together Greater Cuyahoga Valley (RBT), Akron Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CHMC), East Akron Neighborhood Development Corporation (EANDC), Keep Akron Beautiful, Inc., the Akron Fire Department and the Summit County Health District (SCHD) Division of Environmental Health.

Program Summary:
The AHHPCP will reach low- and moderate-income families with children, elderly and adults in Akron, Ohio. The Program will address the seven Healthy Homes components, with an emphasis on three goals for eligible clients: "Keep it Dry," "Keep it Safe," "Keep it Clean." The program is designed to develop, demonstrate and promote cost-effective, preventative measures to correct multiple safety hazards in the home. The program will work closely with the existing HUD-funded Akron Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grant program as well as the SCHD Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program. The AHHPCP grant will give priority to inner-city enterprise zones and enterprise communities. These areas have very high socioeconomic and environmental risk factors. These factors include the age of housing, high poverty, crime, low proficiency test scores and concentrated ethnicity. The AHHPCP will utilize a whole-house assessment method to identify and coordinate resources to address such healthy homes issues as roofing, indoor allergens, lead paint, mold, or safety hazards.

AHHPCP Strategy Assessment Tools:
The City’s strategy will utilize a client-specific combination of pre- and post-interview assessment surveys conducted by the Summit County Health District Environmental Health Education specialist and specific home assessment using the Healthy Homes Rating System (HHRS) by Healthy Homes Program Inspectors. This process will prioritize what rehabilitation work will be performed.
