HUD Offers Grants to Clean Up Lead Hazards
Through its Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant Program, HUD is offering grants totaling approximately $110 million to help eliminate lead-based paint from lower-income homes and to protect young children from lead poisoning. The grants are available for state and local governments.
Qualified entities can apply for supplementary funding to promote and develop a local Healthy Housing initiative, build on their lead hazard control program, or to address multiple housing-related health hazards in accordance with HUD's identified best practices.
HUD also plans to announce the availability of funds for four Healthy Homes and lead grant programs in the near future.
