HUD Invests $568 Million to Address Lead-Based Paint

Grants are now available for public and low-income housing.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced two notices of funding opportunities to address exposure to lead in low-income and public housing. The Lead Hazard Reduction Grant Program will provide $403 million for low-income families living in housing constructed before 1978, and the Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund will provide $165 million in grants for public housing agencies to improve safety in their facilities.

“Everyone in this country deserves to feel safe and healthy in their homes,” said HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. “We are proud to continue fulfilling commitments made under the Biden-Harris Administration’s Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan, including the new funding opportunities we have announced today. These efforts will protect children, babies, and families from lead exposure, which can be detrimental at even low levels, and other home health hazards.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge as she oversees the awarding of funds for lead remediation.
  • For U.S. housing officials as they implement the Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan.
  • For the president and his housing advisors as they attempt to prevent lead exposure.
