Housing & Home Environment

Overview

Extension's goal is for individuals of all ages to have access to affordable, safe, and decent housing.

We provide users with information about water and energy conservation, reducing waste, buying or renting a home, and improving the indoor environment by reducing pollutants like mold, radon, lead, and volatile organic compounds. These resources allow families and individuals to create healthy, safe, and sustainable homes and improve their quality of life.
