Health Resources in Action (HRiA) is a nonprofit organization that works to help people live healthy lives and create healthy communities by pursuing prevention and health promotion activities, policy development, and research.

This project supports HRiA in providing technical assistance to The Nicholson Foundation and the New Jersey Department of Health for the second stage of designing and developing a pilot in-home asthma intervention. The pilot is aimed at integrating asthma in-home interventions with asthma clinical care. The in-home interventions include environmental assessments, education, and guidance on reducing asthma triggers, such as dust, mold, and roaches, that may cause asthma exacerbations and contribute to avoidable hospitalizations.

In this second phase of technical assistance, HRiA will help The Nicholson Foundation work with potential applicants for the pilot and develop plans to support early implementation of the project.
