Grants to USA state, local, and tribal government agencies for comprehensive programs that identify and remediate hazards related to lead-based paint in rental units and owner-occupied housing. Applicants are advised that registrations required to apply may take up to four weeks to complete.
Healthy Homes Supplemental funds may be used only in homes also receiving HUD-funded lead hazard control work (interim controls or abatement). Grantees must use an inspection tool that identifies all 29 hazards identified in the Healthy Homes Rating System (HHRS) for assessing hazards. Grantees must establish a standardized protocol for prioritizing and repairing the identified health and safety hazards within those units. For more information about the Healthy Home Supplement Funds, see HUD’s OLHCHH program division webpage.
The purpose of the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction (LHR) grant program is to assist states, cities, counties/parishes, Native American Tribes or other units of local government in undertaking comprehensive programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately-owned rental or owner-occupied housing populations.
Funds will be awarded to applicants to accomplish the following objectives:
1. Maximize the number of children under the age of six years protected from lead poisoning and the number of housing units where lead hazards are controlled;
2. Target lead hazard control efforts in housing units where children less than six years of age are at greatest risk of lead poisoning (pre-1960), which has historically included children in low-income and minority neighborhoods, to reduce elevated blood lead levels in these children;
3. Utilize cost-effective lead hazard control methods and approaches that ensures the long- term safety of the building occupants;
4. Build local capacity of trained and certified individuals and firms to safely and effectively address lead hazards during lead hazard control, and renovation, remodeling, and maintenance activities;
5. Develop comprehensive, community-based approaches to integrating this grant program within other local initiatives through public and private partnerships that address housing related health and safety hazards and or serve low income families with children under the age of 6;
6. Affirmatively further fair housing and further environmental justice. Note that besides being an objective of this NOFA, the obligation to affirmatively further fair housing is also a civil rights related program requirement;
7. Establish data sharing and targeting between health and housing departments.
8. Establish and implement a detailed process of monitoring and ensuring that units made lead-safe units are affirmatively marketed, and priority given, to families with children under age 6 years for up to three years;
9. Direct job training, employment, contracting, and other economic opportunities generated by this grant to low- and very-low income persons, particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing, and to businesses that provide economic opportunities to low- and very low-income persons in the area in which the project is located. For more information, see 24 CFR 135;
10. Gather pre- and post-treatment data that supports and validates lead hazard control investments; and
11. Comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) and its implementing regulations at 24 CFR 8, and Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Each of these prohibits discrimination based on disability.
