Housing-Related Hazards & Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program

The purpose of the Housing-related Hazards Capital Fund (HRHCF) & Lead-based Paint Capital Fund Program (LBPCF) Notice of Funds Opportunity (NOFO) is to evaluate and reduce residential health hazards in public housing, including lead-based paint, carbon monoxide, mold, radon, fire safety, and asbestos. In accordance with Section 9 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437g) (1937 Act), and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024, $65 million shall be made available for competitive grants to public housing agencies to evaluate and reduce housing-related hazards including lead-based paint in public housing, whereas no less than $25 million of the $65 million of the available funds shall be awarded for evaluating and reducing lead-based paint hazards specifically by carrying out the activities of lead-based risk assessments, inspections, abatement, interim controls, and clearance examinations.  In the event there are not enough eligible applications to award $25 million in competitive grants to evaluate and reduce lead-based paint hazards, any remaining amounts may be awarded to qualified applicants for evaluating and reducing housing-related hazards.  These amounts are combined with an additional $19.5 million in carryover funding from the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 for lead-based paint and approximately $3.3 million in recaptured funds from the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 for lead-based paint. Although two grant programs are combined under one funding opportunity title, applicants will request funding from each grant program separately per the program requirements and application submission guidelines. Applicants are entitled to apply for one grant program or both. Applications will be competitively scored based on the unique rating factors for each individual program and funding may be awarded, fully or partially, under one program, both, or neither based on the rating, ranking, and funding available under each program. If the applicant is applying for funding under both grant programs, the rating and rankings will be determined separately.
