The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have a program aptly called Healthy Homes. The program is described on the website as "a coordinated, comprehensive, and holistic approach to preventing diseases and injuries that result from housing-related hazards and deficiencies."
The program aims to lessen the quality-of-life issues that may be present in the home environment. According to the CDC, housing-related environmental hazards may include: lead exposure, pesticide residues, weak floors or beams, tobacco smoke, mold or excessive moisture and noise.
If someone were to live in a home exposed to these environmental hazards, they are at a higher risk for having poor health. The site has a page that lists tips for each room of the house. There is also another page that lists tips for specific audiences such as people with disabilities and older adults.
Nashville, nor the State of Tennessee, does not currently receive CDC funding as a part of the Healthy Homes program. If interested in more information about potential healthy initiatives in Tennessee, citizens can contact Margaret Major at the Tennessee Department of Health at 615-741-7353.
