About Us

 

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) believes our communities should make affordable and healthy homes available to families. “Healthy Homes” is a century-old concept that promotes safe, decent, and sanitary housing as a means for preventing disease and injury. With that concept in mind, HUD’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control (OHHLHC) sponsored a partnership between National Capitol Contracting (NCC) and the National Center for Healthy (NCHH) homes to create this website.

National Capitol Contracting combines leading edge media, communications, and technology expertise with solutions in the fields of information technology, audio/visual integration, multimedia and broadcast services, and conference logistics and management. NCC’s corporate philosophy revolves around its ability to consistently surpass expectations while delivering superior customer service and high-quality, custom-tailored solutions based on each client’s individual needs. NCC is an SBA-certified 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business headquartered in Arlington, Virginia.

The National Center for Healthy Housing is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation based in Columbia, Maryland, dedicated to creating healthy and safe homes for children through practical and proven steps. NCHH has over 16 years of experience conducting applied research, program evaluation, technical assistance, training, and outreach, focused on reducing the health consequences of indoor exposures.

The NCC/NCHH team evaluated more than 80 credentials programs and identified those that were directly relevant to healthy homes and were credible enough to be useful to someone seeking a healthy homes professional. It included only those credential programs that:

  • Had strong, objective criteria to evaluate candidates;
  • Required candidates to follow a strict code of ethics;

Assessment
Hazard Control
Other

Credential programs related to healthy homes but not assessment or hazard control.
