Lead Paint & Healthy Homes Program

Overview


The City has been awarded a $5.7M grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address lead-based paint and healthy housing issues in housing occupied by low-income households. Grants are available to qualified units up to $16,500/unit for lead hazards and $3,500/unit for health or safety hazards. 
 
The grant program will cover the cost of all inspections and clearance certifications. Urban Programs staff oversees the entire remediation process: drafting the scope of work, putting the project out to bid, ensuring all technical requirements are met, helping with temporary tenant relocation (usually no more than 10 days), and paying the contractors.
