The LHRD program funds units of state, local and tribal government to implement comprehensive programs to identify and remediate lead based paint hazards in privately owned rental or owner occupied housing.
The LHRD program is targeted to urban jurisdictions (either alone or through a consortium)
that have at least 3,500 pre-1940 occupied rental housing units.
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, prioritizing and repairing the identified health and safety hazards within those units.
For more information on the HHRS, see HUD's HHRS webpage.
