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.

Anacostia River Creel/ Angler Survey
QuanTech conducted the Anacostia Creel Angler Survey (CAS) in 2019 to collect data on shore-based recreational fishing in the tidal portion of the Anacostia River. The results of the CAS will be used to derive detailed information on angler trips, fishing behaviors, including species targeted and harvested, the frequency and consumption of harvested fish, and angler demographics. QuanTech's responsibilities for the CAS include survey design, recruiting and training interviewers, creating the sample frame, drawing a random sample of site/days, administering the survey, interviewing anglers, enumerating, measuring, and weighing catch, project reports, and data analysis. QuanTech is currently analyzing the data collected from this study.
