Individual Household Funding Opportunities

Funds are available for individuals working towards reducing lead-based paint hazards through home renovation and repair. There are different grants for different groups of homeowners. Many focus on low and moderate-income homeowners or property owners with tenants with low to moderate-incomes. Some special groups have funding opportunities, such as veterans and rural residents.

 

Division of Housing (Exit DHS) - The U.S. Department of Administration, Division of Housing's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME program have funding for housing rehabilitation including lead hazard repairs. Clients may contact the CDBG regional offices and/or the HOME recipients directly to apply for housing rehabilitation assistance. Read more and find local contacts.
