The Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control oversees seven grant programs under the Healthy Homes Initiative and the Program Management and Assurance Division to assist in achieving our mission. The information provided below is intended to provide you with an overview of our programs and to direct you to the grant program most appropriate to you.

In 2004, the National Center for Healthy Housing conducted a National Evaluation of OHHLHC grant programs - a very helpful resource for you to review. In addition to the National Evaluation, you can find out detailed information on each program by following the links provided below.

Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Program (LHRD)
