Wayne State Awarded Grant

On May 8, 2012, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded Wayne State University’s Center for Urban Studies nearly $700,000 to “assess the reliability of assessments completed using the Healthy Homes Rating Tool” (HHRT), and to “test… assessors on providing likelihoods and outcomes based upon U.S. data, and assess the effect of training on assessment quality and reliability.”  CLEARCorps/Detroit uses the HHRT to help determine home repairs for clients in our Healthy Homes Detroit program.

The HHRT is an integral part of prioritizing health and safety repairs, and determining which hazards pose the greatest risk to our clients and their children.  CLEARCorps/Detroit looks forward to working with WSU’s Center for Urban Studies to evaluate how we can best reduce health and safety hazards in our client’s homes.
