NACCHO serves approximately 3,000 local health departments and is the leader in providing cutting-edge, skill-building, professional resources and programs; seeking health equity; and supporting effective local public health practice and systems. The mission of the National Center for Health Housing (NCHH) is "Transforming lives by transforming housing." Through partnerships, community-based research, and advocacy, NCHH strives to reduce health disparities by translating credible science into tools and catalyzing systems change in low-income communities. This endeavor is most effective through partnerships, practical research, community capacity building, and data-driven advocacy and awareness building. NCHH equips leaders in the public health, housing, and environmental sectors with the data, tools, policies, and best practices they need to improve housing quality in their communities. The National Environmental Health Association’s (NEHA) mission is to build, sustain, and empower an effective environmental health workforce. Advancement has been defined by NEHA in terms of both education and motivation. The basis for the association’s activities is the belief that the professional who is educated and motivated is the professional who will make the greatest contribution to the healthful environmental goals we all seek. Accordingly, through each of NEHA’s programs, great emphasis is placed on providing both educational and motivational opportunities.
