UGA Extension wants 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.
