JACKSON ANNOUNCES $31 MILLION IN GRANTS TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM DANGEROUS LEAD PAINT HAZARDS - Lead hazard will be eliminated from thousands of low-income homes
WASHINGTON - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson today awarded more than $31 million in grants to twelve state and local communities to protect children and families from dangerous lead-based paint hazards in homes. The awards, under the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration grant program, will target funding to communities with the greatest need, specifically those with a high incidence of lead poisoning, and older rental housing.

"Today's announcement illustrates how HUD is continuing its work with communities that have special health concerns," said Jackson. "The communities receiving grants today have demonstrated that they are fully committed to making their older housing safer and healthier places for children."

HUD's lead grants will help twelve local projects in California, Illinois, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Texas and Wisconsin to conduct a wide range of activities including cleaning up lead-based paint hazards and improving living conditions of lower income families. Eligible jurisdictions for the grant program include those with at least 3,500 occupied rental-housing units built before 1940. This funding will allow communities to eliminate dangerous lead paint hazards in thousands of privately owned, low-income housing units.

Through its seven grant programs, HUD's Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control promotes local efforts to eliminate dangerous lead and other hazards from lower income homes; stimulates private sector investment in lead hazard control; educates the public about the dangers of lead-based paint; and supports scientific research into innovative methods to identify and eliminate health hazards in housing.

On March 8, 2006, HUD published its FY 2006 SuperNOFA (Notice of Funds Availability) for HUD's Discretionary Grant Programs, which included a Program Section addressing three Lead Hazard Control grant programs. Awards under that NOFA were announced on September 15, 2006. At that time, HUD re-opened the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration NOFA to make additional awards utilizing uncommitted funding. This NOFA closed on October 31, 2006.
