Every home should be healthy.

Exposure to toxic materials used in building products can have serious long-term health implications, but homes can be built to be healthier.

The best way to prevent hazardous exposure is to eliminate the source.

The Healthy Affordable Materials Project seeks to improve the lives and health of affordable housing residents by reducing the use of toxic materials in building products.

The Healthy Affordable Materials Project is a four-part collaborative supported by a grant from The JPB Foundation and guided by a board of expert advisors.
