Project Title & Description
Up To Code Campaign
The "Up to Code Campaign" will take place in Providence, Rhode Island. Activities include collaborating with the Providence City Solicitor's Office and Housing Court to raise awareness among staff about the health dangers posed by deteriorating properties and unsafe renovation practices, training staff on under-utilized laws, creating a system for education violators about training and financial assistance for compliance. The goal is to bring more Providence properties into compliance with housing code, reduce the rate of childhood lead poisoning, engage residents in local efforts to improve housing conditions, and decrease the use of unsafe, illegal home renovation practices.
