At the 2012 CGI America Meeting, Ruth Ann Norton announces a new CGI America Commitment to Action by Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning.

GREEN & HEALTHY HOMES INITIATIVE
In 2012, the Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning committed to scaling its Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) to 25 new cities in the next three years. This $11.82 million commitment will leverage $250 million in public and private investments, create 25,000 Green & Healthy Homes and 1,550 green construction jobs. GHHI is a high quality, high impact approach to housing rehabilitation that drives public and private sector collaboration, streamlines service delivery, integrates energy and healthy housing interventions and develops new community-based green and healthy homes contractors. This commitment builds on GHHI's initial 15 pilot cities that have successfully enrolled 7,000 housing units. To achieve this scale-up, GHHI will provide sites with a comprehensive tool-kit, integrated interventions, and a shared data platform and systems to braid multiple funding streams. GHHI will target unemployed and low skilled incumbent workers for employment training that will enable them to perform the comprehensive GHHI intervention. GHHI has established an initial goal to have at least 20 percent of the contracting pool include women or women-owned businesses.
