Healthy Neighborhoods Program, Housing Demographics and Conditions, Initial Visits and Revisits: Beginning 2006 - 2009 Funding Cycle
The NYS Healthy Neighborhoods Program (HNP) is a healthy homes program that seeks to reduce the burden of housing-related illness and injury. County health departments are funded to implement the program in selected high-risk target areas. A surveyor assesses conditions in each home and provides interventions and guidance to address identified hazards. A quarter of homes receive an follow-up visit (revisit). The dataset includes information about building characteristics, primary respondent demographics and the presence/absence of 34 specific housing conditions for dwellings visited by each county program.
