Lead Hazard Reduction Grant
US Department Of Housing And Urban Development (HUD)
About the Award:
This grant available to tribes can be used to fund lead hazard control efforts that ensure the long-term safety of the building occupants. This could equate to changes made to existing structures or the construction of lead-safe units. Projects should target lead hazard control efforts in housing units with children under 6 at great risk of lead poisoning and build local capacity for safely and effectively addressing health and safety hazards. Projects should collect pre- and post-intervention blood lead level data. The period of performance is expected to be a 42-month project and budget period. Native American tribal applicants (principal applicants and partner applicants) are eligible to apply for this program only if they have an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) authorized lead-based paint training and certification program as of the submission deadline date. Tribes that currently meet this specification include the Cherokee Nation, Lower Sioux Nation, Upper Sioux Community, and Bois Forte Band.
