FY 2019 Lead and Healthy Homes Technical Studies Grant Program Pre- and Full Application (FR-6300-N15)

Through the Lead and Healthy Homes Technical Studies grant program, HUD is funding studies to improve HUD's and the public's knowledge of housing-related health and safety hazards and to improve or develop new hazard assessment and control methods, with a focus on lead and other key residential health and safety hazards. HUD is especially interested in applications that will advance our knowledge on priority healthy homes issues by addressing important gaps in the science related to the accurate and efficient identification of hazards and the implementation of cost-effective hazard mitigation.

The overall goal of the Lead Technical Studies (LTS) grant program is to gain knowledge to improve the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of methods for evaluation and control of residential lead-based paint hazards, and the overall goal of the Healthy Homes Technical Studies (HHTS) program is to advance the recognition and control of priority residential health and safety hazards and more closely examine the link between housing and health.

The objectives of the HHTS program include, but are not limited to the:

  1. Development and evaluation of cost-effective test methods and protocols for the identification and assessment of housing-related hazards;
  2. Development and assessment of cost-effective methods for reducing or eliminating housing-related hazards; and
  3. Evaluation of the effectiveness of housing interventions and barriers and incentives affecting future use of the most cost-effective strategies.

The estimated total funding for this grant program is $7,000,000, and Awards will range from $300,000 to a maximum of $700,000 for the LTS Grant Program and $300,000 to a maximum of $1,000,000 for the HHTS Grant Program.
