HUD Grants to Remove Lead Based Paint

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is making grants available to help eliminate lead-based paint and other housing-related health hazards from lower-income homes. HUD is making these grants available through its Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control, Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration, Healthy Homes Production and Asthma Interventions in Public and Assisted Multifamily Housing Grant Programs.

HUD requires prospective grantees to submit their applications electronically via Any changes to HUD-published funding notices will be made available to the public through a Federal Register publication and published on the website.

"These grants are critical for states, counties and cities that are on the front lines of protecting our children from lead hazards and other residential hazards," says Jon Gant, director of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.
