On April 13th, 2021, HUD's Jacksonville team, along with experts from the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) offered a state-wide training for partners and stakeholders about making homes healthier for families, and upcoming funding grants available.

Open to a variety of stakeholders, the virtual training was attended by 29 agencies representing elected officials, congressional case workers, representatives from the cities of Tallahassee, Palatka, Jacksonville, Orlando, health departments, housing authorities, and community partners.

Participants received information on types of funding, where, and how to apply to help improve the quality of life for their communities. Attendees were engaged with the conversation and enthusiastic about the training materials, resources and contact information to solve future questions.

In a roundtable style, HUD Jacksonville Field Office Director Alesia Scott-Ford welcomed the guests and led the conversation; Yolanda Brown, Myia Egleton, and Jonnette H. Simmons, from OLHCHH gave the presentation and answered questions from the audience.
