FY 2019 Healthy Homes Production Grant Program for Tribal Housing 

The Healthy Homes Production (HHP) Program is part of HUD’s overall Healthy Homes Initiative launched in 1999. The program takes a comprehensive approach to addressing multiple childhood diseases and injuries in the home by focusing on housing-related hazards in a coordinated fashion, rather than addressing a single hazard at a time. The program builds upon HUD’s experience with Lead Hazard Control programs to expand the Department’s efforts to address a variety of high-priority environmental health and safety hazards.

The objectives awardees are expected to accomplish include, but are not limited to:

  • Maximize both the number of vulnerable residents (such as, specifically children and elderly residents) protected from housing-related environmental health and safety hazards and the number of housing units where these hazards are controlled;
  • Identify and remediate priority housing-related health and safety hazards in privately owned, low-income rental and/or owner-occupied housing, especially in units and/or buildings where families with children, elderly families, or families with persons with disabilities reside;
  • Promote cost-effective and efficient healthy home methods and approaches that can be replicated and sustained;
  • Support public education and outreach that furthers the goal of protecting children and other vulnerable populations from housing-related health and safety hazards; and
  • Build local capacity to operate sustainable programs that will prevent and control housing-related environmental health and safety hazards in low- and very low-income residences and develop a professional workforce that is trained in healthy homes assessment and remediation principles.

The estimated total funding for this award is $12,000,000, and HUD expects to make approximately 12 awards from the funds available. The minimum award amount is $500,000 per project period, and the maximum award amount is $1,000,000 per project period.
