Safe, Healthy, and Sustainable Housing Summit
December 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Providing low-cost interventions in substandard housing provides an exceptionally high return on investment for family health and sustainability. Breaking down the silos between funding sources for lead, energy, and healthy homes services presents unprecedented opportunities to energize new job opportunities, foster economic development, and generate high returns on investment in health, education, and criminal justice.
Join us for a panel discussion and home tour co-hosted by Isles Inc. and Jersey Renews will provide attendees with information about the health and economic opportunities available by providing comprehensive lead, energy and healthy homes work in low-income communities. Panelists will explore the cost- effectiveness and ability for community-based organizations to work with governments to provide comprehensive home health and energy services. Confirmed panelists include: Doug O’Malley, State Director, Environment NJ; Marty Johnson, CEO, Isles Inc., and Elyse Pivnick, Senior Director of Environmental Health, Isles Inc.
A live video tour of a home undergoing combined lead, energy and healthy homes repairs will be held at the end of the panel Q&A.
