Frequent Questions

Are prison facilities and juvenile detention centers built before 1978 considered target housing?

Target housing means any housing constructed prior to 1978. Certain parts of prison facilities and juvenile detention centers that house incarcerated persons are housing. However, as a practical matter, EPA believes that the most parts of prisons and juvenile detention centers that would be considered housing are also zero bedroom dwellings (i.e. a residential dwelling in which the living area is not separated from the sleeping area) and therefore not subject to the RRP Rule.
