QuanTech is Currently Conducting the Following Studies
American Healthy Homes Survey II
QuanTech is conducting data analysis for 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. QuanTech conducted the survey 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. QuanTech is currently analyzing the results.
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.
