Healthy Neighborhoods Program (HNP)


HNP_LOGO.jpgThe Rockland County Healthy Neighborhoods Program (HNP)  offers home visits to identify and discuss health and safety issues in the home for eligible residents including low-income residents, seniors, and at-risk families.
We discuss fire safety, carbon monoxide safety and cooking safety, and provide free products to help address these issues, such as smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.

HNP provides outreach and education to address and HNP1.jpgcorrect Asthma triggers in the home, and provides safe cleaning products such as dusters, green cleaners, mattress covers, pillow covers, etc.
We can conduct Radon testing in your home to help you have a better picture of your indoor air quality.  New York State Department of Health has more information and maps on Radon.
HNP also offers engaging and interactive presentations on a variety of topics.
