FY 2022 Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Lead Risk Assessment Demonstration (LRAD)

The purpose of the Lead-Based Paint Risk Assessment Demonstration Program (LRAD) is to demonstrate the feasibility of conducting Lead-Based Paint Risk Assessments or Lead Hazard Screens in pre-1978 Housing Choice Voucher assistance (HCV) units (as described at 42 U.S.C. 1437f(o)) occupied or to be occupied by children under the age of 6.  Exposure to lead-based paint hazards can lead to a variety of health problems in young children, including reduced IQ, learning disabilities, developmental delays, reduced height, and impaired hearing. At higher levels, lead can damage a child's kidneys and central nervous system and can be deadly. The program under this NOFO provides competitive grants to Public Housing Authorities to evaluate for lead-based paint hazards in HCV units constructed before 1978 and occupied or to be occupied by a child under 6 through risk assessments and lead hazard screens in target housing (as those terms are defined in 24 CFR 35.110). 

Funding of approximately $50,000,000 is available through this NOFO. HUD expects to make approximately 50 awards from the funds available under this NOFO. 

Preference Points: This NOFO offers Environmental Justice preference points.
