Healthy Neighborhoods Program

The Healthy Neighborhoods Program (HNP) is a FREE service that aims to improve the health, safety, Columbia County Healthy Neighborhoods Program and environmental living conditions for all residents in Columbia County. It is funded through a grant provided by the New York State Department of Health

The HNP seeks to help promote healthy homes through the following goals:

  1. Increase fire safety and prevent residential fire deaths
  2. Reduce asthma triggers in the home
  3. Increase homes tested for radon
  4. Reduce indoor air pollution

Participants will be visited in their home by HNP educators who will work with residents on how to keep a healthy and safe home. During the home visit, HNP educators may identify safety or health hazards and provide information and free materials to help improve the area of concern.  

Products may include: Fire extinguishers, 10-year sealed smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, radon test kits, asthma management tools, green cleaning items, child safety, and fall prevention items

There are no income or age requirements to be eligible for the program; however, a home visit is required. All residents who live in Columbia County are strongly encouraged to participate. You do not need to own a home to receive a home visit; renters are also welcome. Please contact us for more information or call: (518) 828-3358, option #3.
