Lead and Healthy Homes Technical Studies Programs

US Department Of Housing And Urban Development (HUD)

Grants available for researching housing-related health hazards.

About the Award:

HUD is especially interested in applications that will advance our knowledge on priority healthy homes issues by addressing important gaps in the science related to the accurate and efficient identification of hazards and the implementation of cost effective hazard mitigation This funding is split into two different programs: the Lead Technical Studies and Healthy Homes Technical Studies programs. The Lead Technical Studies program is intended to fund projects focused on improving the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of methods for evaluation and control of residential lead-based paint hazards. The Healthy Homes Technical Studies program is intended to fund projects focused on the development and evaluation of cost-effective methods of monitoring, reducing, and preventing housing-related hazards, among other objectives. HUD is especially interested in funding practical, applied research that can directly inform policies and practices to reduce the prevalence and severity of residential health and safety hazards and improve the health and well being of residents.
