Value of lead remediation grants disbursed by year, 2004-2014 Q2

The Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development’s Lead Hazard Control Grant Program provides grants to homeowners to remediate lead hazards on their property. The Lead Program is funded by a periodic federal grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control Division. The fund is available on a first come, first serve basis and priority is given to properties with children under the age of 6. To be eligible for a lead grant, the property owner must apply and the tenant-occupied household units must meet specific income and property eligibility requirements. The chart below shows for each year the total value of the dispersed grants.
