About This Program:
The goal of this program is to identify and remove housing-related health and safety
hazards in homes where families with young children, older adults (62+ years),
and/or families with persons with disabilities live.
Cosmetic Repairs are not permitted in this program.
Revitalize CDC will conduct assessments in your home to detect any health and
safety issues that are present. Once the assessment has been completed, we will
develop a plan to make repairs or remove pollutants.
This Program Will Address:
Asthma & Allergies
Asthma attacks can be triggered by allergens in the home, including mold, dust
mites, rodents, insects, excess dust, and second-hand smoke.
Mold & Moisture Control
Mold and moisture increase allergens that can trigger illness and asthma and cause
the home to develop problems. Mold may be present in places where excess
moisture or water damage has occurred.

Children spend most of their time indoors. For their size, children breathe up to twice
as much air as adults. That means children are at greater risk for health problems
that come from indoor air pollution.
