Lead Hazard Control Grant Program
On August 1, 2013, the Ohio Department of Health’s Ohio Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (OHHLPP) was awarded $2.3 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to perform lead-hazard control work on properties housing one or more children under six years of age. The grant is funded for three years. $230,000 in match funds is provided by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and the Ohio Housing Trust Fund.
The grant enables OHHLPPP to conduct lead hazard control and healthy homes work in 16 Ohio counties (see map below). Specifically, the funds are used for the identification of lead hazards in units occupied by children who have been lead poisoned or are at-risk of becoming lead poisoned; the remediation of the lead hazards through appropriate control or abatement procedures; and, ancillary activities such as training, outreach, and casework.
