Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, IHEs, government agencies, and tribes for research studies to improve housing-related safety and health policies and practices. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended particularly for studies that will advance the public’s knowledge of housing safety, and that will develop or improve hazard control and assessment methods.

HUD is especially interested in applications that will advance knowledge on priority healthy homes issues by addressing important gaps in the science related to the accurate and efficient identification of hazards and the implementation of cost-effective hazard mitigation. This includes studies using implementation sciences in identifying specific conditions under which residential environmental hazard interventions that have been shown to be effective in specific housing types and residential settings can be assessed in other contexts.

General Goals: 

  1. Lead Technical Studies (LTS): The overall goal of the LTS grant program is to gain knowledge to improve the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of methods for evaluation and control of residential lead-based paint hazards. Through this Program, HUD is working to fulfill the requirements of sections 1051 and 1052 of the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 (Title X) (42 U.S.C. §§ 4854 and 4854a) which directs HUD to conduct research on topics which include the development of improved methods for evaluating and reducing lead-based paint hazards in housing, among others.
  2. Healthy Homes Technical Studies (HHTS):  The overall goal of the HHTS Program is to advance the recognition and control of priority residential health and safety hazards and more closely examine the link between housing and health.
