QuanTech is Currently Conducting the Following Studies
QuanTech is conducting the second American Healthy Homes Survey (AHHS II) for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes www.hud.gov/healthyhomes. In AHHS II, homes are tested for lead in paint, dust, soil and water; pesticides and mold in dust; formaldehyde in air; and, safety hazards. The survey is being conducted between March 2018 and May 2019 in 78 cities and counties in 37 states all over the U.S. Approximately 800 homes have been randomly selected in these areas to participate in the survey.
If your home is one of the 800 selected, you will receive an official letter inviting you to participate and offering you a financial incentive of $130. Even if you believe your home is free of lead paint or other hazards, HUD is still interested in testing it because this is the only way to be sure and to get an accurate count of how many of the tested homes do have hazards.
More information about AHHS II can be found on
HUD’s website at:

HMS General Category Cost and Earning Logbook
QuanTech is administering a logbook study to collect data on the revenue and cost structure of vessels participating in the Atlantic Tunas General category fishery. The study is needed to support economic analyses of impacts of future proposed regulatory changes that could impact Atlantic Tunas General category and Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Charter/Headboat permit holders that participate in this fishery.
If you were selected to participate in the survey, reporting starts January 1st, 2018. You will be asked to report on all your commercial HMS fishing in calendar year 2018. In any month where you do not fish for HMS, a "No Fishing" report will be needed.
