Looking for help with lead-based paint in your area?


The Programs Division (PD) oversees the OHHLHC's lead-based paint grant programs. Our goal is to eliminate childhood lead poisoning by controlling lead-based paint hazards in privately owned housing. The Notice of Funding Availability is published online.

Lead paint hazards are created when lead-based paint peels, flakes, chips, chalks, or creates leaded dust when painted surfaces, like windows, rub against each other. Since 1993, OHHLHC's lead hazard control grants have reduced or eliminated lead paint hazards in thousands of privately owned homes where young children live. PMAD also supports efforts to educate the public about the dangers of lead-based paint and to develop better methods of lead paint identification and control. PMAD directs five grant programs within OHHLHC:

Lead-based Paint Hazard Control Program (LHC)

The LHC Grant Program assists States, Native American Tribes and local governments in creating wide-ranging programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately owned housing. Each year the OHHLHC awards roughly 30 grants of up to $3M per grant. Applicants must provide a 10% non-federal match to participate.

Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Program (LHRD)

The LHRD Grant Program assists States, Native American Tribes and local governments with high numbers of rental units built in 1940 or earlier in creating wide-ranging programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately owned housing. The LHRD grant program requires a 25% non-federal match. Each year the OHHLHC awards roughly 12 grants of up to $4M per grant.
