Heatwaves, Housing, and Health (HHH) Partnership:

Increasing Climate Resiliency in Detroit

Heatwaves, Housing, and Health (HHH) 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 heatwaves. HHH also explores how community programs related to housing may reduce inequities in exposure to heat and health risk during periods of extreme summertime heat.

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