CAPITAL FUND HOUSING-RELATED HAZARDS AND LEAD-BASED PAINT FUNDING

Since FY22, the Housing-Related Hazards Capital Fund Program and the Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program have been announced under the same Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).  Prospective applicants must request funding from each grant program separately per the program requirements and application submission guidelines. Applicants may apply for one grant program or both.

The Housing-Related Hazard Capital Fund Program

The Housing-Related Hazard Capital Fund program is a competitive grant program that provides funds to Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) to evaluate and reduce housing-related hazards in public housing such as mold, carbon monoxide, radon, and fire safety.  

  • FY2024 Housing-Related Hazards & Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program Funding Opportunity - The FY2024 Housing-related Hazard Capital Fund NOFO made $40 million available in new competitive grants for PHAs to evaluate and reduce housing-related hazards in public housing such as mold, carbon monoxide, radon, and fire safety.  Applicants are competitively scored based on need, soundness of approach and cost estimate, and past performance. PHAs can base their Need Assessment Narrative on hazards identified through previous testing, a National Standards for Physical Inspections (NSPIRE) inspection performed by HUD's Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) or through an NSPIRE self- inspection or assessment, and the potential future impacts of the hazard. Grant funds can be used to conduct additional evaluations.  The minimum grant award amount is $10,000 and the maximum grant amount is $5 million. To be considered for funding, PHAs must submit their applications by July 1, 2024.


  • FY 2020 Housing-related Hazard Capital Fund Program - The FY 2020 Housing-related Hazard Capital Fund NOFA made $20 million available in new competitive grants for PHAs to identify and eliminate housing-related hazards in public housing such as mold, carbon monoxide, pest infestation, radon, fire hazards and other housing hazards. Applicants will be competitively scored based on hazard type, need, soundness of approach and cost estimate, past performance, and other factors/bonus point. Priority hazards for funding include carbon monoxide, mold, and radon with second priority for fire sprinklers and pest infestation. PHAs can propose other hazards and justify need with a supporting narrative. PHAs can base their narrative on hazards identified through data gathered through property assessment and/or testing and the potential future impacts of the hazards. Grant funding can be used to conduct further evaluations. The minimum grant award amount is $10,000 and the maximum grant amount is $4 million. To be funded, PHAs must have submitted their applications by May 25th, 2021.


The Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program

The Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund program is a competitive grant program that provides funds to PHAs to evaluate and reduce lead-based paint hazards in public housing.  PHAs can use the funding to perform lead-based risk assessments, inspections, abatement, interim controls, relocation, and clearance examinations in target public housing. 

  • FY2024 Housing-Related Hazards & Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program Funding Opportunity - The FY 2024 Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund NOFO made approximately $47.8 million available in new competitive grants for PHAs to evaluate and reduce lead-based paint hazards in public housing. PHAs can use the funding to perform lead-based risk assessments, inspections, abatement, interim controls, relocation, and clearance examinations in target public housing.  Applications with projects with the oldest construction dates, the highest number of units occupied by families with at least one child under age six will be the most competitive, and where the highest percentage of the applicant’s overall public housing portfolio is impacted will receive the most points. The minimum grant award is $10,000 and the maximum grant award is $7.5 million. To be considered for funding, PHA must submit applications by July 1, 2024.
