Funding & Services

Connecticut Children’s Healthy Homes Program receives funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the State of Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH). Through the Healthy Homes Program, the combined grant funds help offset or eliminate the costs for home inspections, temporary relocation and removal of health and safety hazards. Property owners are encouraged to apply for funding from both programs.
