Today, the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI), a grantee of the Social Innovation Fund’s (SIF) Pay for Success program, and its collaboration partner Calvert Foundation, selected five service providers to participate in regional Pay for Success (PFS) projects. The Healthy Homes Coalition, along with Health Net and the Asthma Network were selected as service providers for the Grand Rapids, MI project. These organizations will partner with Spectrum Health and Priority Health to develop and implement a local model for west Michigan.
The Healthy Homes Coalition is a proud partner of the Get the Lead Out! program. More than 1,350 homes have had lead hazards abated through this financial assistance program. Click here to learn more.

Mold & Moisture
Mold can cause health problems and trigger allergies and asthma attacks. With adequate moisture, mold can grow anywhere in the home. It can also be controlled, making the air easier for all to breathe. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families understand mold problems and access the resources needed to make repairs.
