Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control in Privately-Owned Housing

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control grants assist State, Tribal, and local governments to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in privately-owned housing that is owned by or rented to low- or very-low income families. Specific objectives include: (1) building the capacity necessary to eliminate lead-based paint hazards in all housing; (2) preventing childhood lead poisoning; (3) involving cooperation among all levels of government, the private sector, faith-based organizations, and community-based organizations; (4) integrating comprehensive community approaches to address lead hazards in housing; (5) integrating lead-safe practices into other programs which will continue beyond the life of the grant; (6) establishing a public registry of lead-safe housing; and (7) promoting job training, employment, and other economic lift opportunities for low-income residents of project neighborhoods.
