HUD Strategic Plan

Deputy Secretary Ron Sims has created a HUD Healthy Homes Task Force, and radon is one of the issues that the Task Force will address, with the goal being to integrate radon testing and mitigation better into HUD’s housing programs. HUD also participates in a Federal Healthy Homes Work Group that facilitates interagency communication and coordination on healthy homes issues. The Work Group is in the final stages of developing a federal “Strategy for Action” to advance healthy housing which will include radon as a priority environmental health hazard. The results of this work group will be available online for all to see in Fall 2010.
