What is target housing?

Answer: Target housing is defined in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as any housing constructed before 1978, except housing for the elderly or persons with disabilities or any 0-bedroom dwelling.  However, target housing does include pre-1978 housing for the elderly or persons with disabilities, if any child under age six resides or is expected to reside in such housing.
