The Healthy Neighborhoods Program of the Niagara County Department of Health is a grant-funded program designed to improve the environmental health and safety of individuals living in target areas. Home visits are conducted to assess health and safety concerns. A checklist is reviewed with residents, and safety items (fuses, smoke detectors, batteries for smoke detectors, safety plugs, cleaning supplies, switch and outlet cover plates, and various other items) are provided as needed. Carbon monoxide levels in the home can be checked during the visit. The Healthy Neighborhoods Program grant allows for free home health and safety visits to residents in Niagara Falls and, beginning in the spring of 2014, selected mobile home parks in Lockport.

The Healthy Neighborhoods Program staff assists future health and social service professionals to learn more about physical health conditions and its relationship to the home environment. Physicians in the residency programs from Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center's Family Practice program and from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine, nursing students from Niagara County Community College, students from Niagara University and others have shadowed and learned how to identify chronic health symptoms that can be linked to the home environment.
Niagara County's Healthy Neighborhoods Program is located in the heart of the City of Niagara Falls, NY.
