Climate Hazards, Housing, and Health (CHHH) Partnership:

Increasing Climate Resiliency in Detroit

Climate Hazards, Housing, and Health (CHHH) is a partnership between five representatives of community-based organizations in Detroit and five multi-disciplinary academic researchers at the U-M.

We focus on understanding how housing characteristics affect the ability to provide health-sustaining and comfortable temperatures to occupants during extreme temperatures, prolonged or excessive precipitation or other climate hazards. CHHH also explores how community programs related to housing may reduce health risk inequities during hazardous climate events.

CHHH is an allied partner of the Detroit Community-Academic Urban Research Center (Detroit URC).
