HUD Seeks Solutions to Lead Poisoning Threat

Secretary of HUD hosts CEO of Cleveland Clinic to discuss lead issues in low-income communities.

This week, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge held discussions with Cleveland Clinic President and CEO Dr. Tom Mihaljevic on resolving housing issues surrounding lead poisoning. Earlier this year, HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) announced $450 million in funding for programs to assess and remediate lead-based paint and other housing-related health hazards.

“We’re doing our part to make sure that we put people in safer places, and you will find over time, we can show that children that live in HUD properties or those associated with HUD have lower levels because of our inspections and because of our demanding that these issues are taken care of as quickly as possible,” said Secretary Fudge.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge to seek the Lord’s direction as she leads her department.
  • For wisdom for HUD officials as they work to reduce health hazards in housing.
