This course is designed to enable students to interpret and apply the principles of the HHRS, prioritize corrective actions, and communicate their findings in an Assessment Report. Students learn how to classify housing deficiencies into hazards, how to evaluate the possible health impacts from those hazards, and how to calculate a hazard score and hazard band. The course includes a site visit so students can collect information from a house and practice using the HHRS tool. After completing the course, students have the opportunity to conduct their own assessment using the HHRS and submit a report to their trainer to be scored. If they pass, they receive an additional certificate to show they have demonstrated the ability to use the tool.

Environmental review allows local government, federal funding agencies and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate alternative sites and designs that can mitigate adverse impacts and/or lower long-term maintenance costs. All federal projects come with environmental assessment responsibilities under NEPA, and many local governments either have to meet the NEPA requirement because of the federal portion of funding and/or see the value of routinely including environmental considerations in their local decision making process.
