Asthma Technical Assistance:
Partnering with Energy Stakeholders

This week, as part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) August asthma technical assistance (TA) series, we’re focusing on a new resource to help your asthma program partner with energy stakeholders.

The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) mini-module titled Why Partner With Energy Stakeholders and Programs? includes a video presentation, slides and key readings to highlight why energy programs can be of value to those working to advance and sustain in-home asthma care. Topics include—

  • Why collaborating with energy programs makes sense
  • How to find potential energy partners for your program
  • Examples of existing asthma–energy collaborations across the country

In addition, the mini-module includes links and downloadable reports summarizing research on occupant health benefits of residential energy efficiency and research showing that home performance upgrades can improve the quality of a home’s indoor environment by reducing the prevalence of harmful indoor air pollutants and contaminants. The module also offers information on low-income weatherization programs.


Log in to the eLearning website, enroll in the free course, and check out the section titled “Mini-Module: Why Partner With Energy Stakeholders and Programs?” There you will find the video presentation, slides and additional resources to download.

While you’re there, check out the many other technical assistance resources and tools that can support the design and implementation of asthma home-visiting programs and other in-home asthma environmental interventions in your community!

The mission of NCHH is to secure healthy homes for all and reduce health disparities through partnerships, community-based research and advocacy. With the support of EPA, NCHH developed new mini-modules and TA tools to support the design and implementation of asthma home-visiting programs and other in-home asthma environmental interventions. These tools are in addition to the eLearning modules previously developed by NCHH’s Building Systems to Sustain Home-Based Asthma Services that cover topics including Medicaid reimbursement, business case development, workforce and training, evaluation and reporting, and more.

Don’t let the summer slip away!
Learn more about how to enroll in NCHH’s eLearning course and take advantage of all of the available resources for your asthma home-visiting program.

TA resources developed in 2018 through EPA’s cooperative agreement with NCHH.
