Proactively Addressing Substandard Housing: A Working Group Meeting

Proactively Addressing Substandard Housing (PASH) Working Group Update

In April 2017, PASH convened its first bi-monthly meeting to bring community stakeholders together to (1) examine ways to promote a health-focused approach to home inspections in Chicago’s municipal code, (2) develop specific recommendations for policy makers, and (3) build an advocacy plan that promotes the PASH recommendations for a proactive health-based home inspection model in Chicago.

PASH participants include community members, public health professionals, legal and policy advocates, researchers, and government officials.  

Please join us in building a community agenda for promoting a health-based home inspection model in Chicago. All Chicagoans, particularly vulnerable children, need housing that does not Threaten their long-term health via lead-contaminated paint or water, mold, pests, among others.

Be involved in the solution to strengthen our community.
