The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has taken significant steps towards eliminating radon exposure in renter-occupied homes by issuing two new policies that will incorporate radon testing and mitigation into HUD programs to help prevent some of the estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths radon causes in the United States every year.
HUD's Office of Multi-Family Housing's new policy requires radon testing and, if applicable, mitigation for most new FHA-insured construction, conversion, and substantial rehabilitation projects, as well as most FHA-insured refinance transactions. Radon testing and mitigation is not required for refinance projects located in low risk areas or if a certified radon professional determines that radon risk is sufficiently low for the project.
