About the Process
- You will receive a letter letting you know that your application has been approved.
- A free risk assessment and paint inspection will be scheduled with you. The assessment will determine if there are lead hazards.
- If lead hazards are found, grant money is used to hire a certified contractor to address the hazards. Grant awards are currently a maximum average of $10,000 per unit for single family homes and $4,000 per unit in a multi-family home. If the lead reduction costs exceed the HUD limit, the owner must contribute the difference between the grant amount and the total cost of lead reduction.
- Once the work is completed, PHB will conduct a clearance test to ensure that the hazards have been addressed and pays the contractor for the work.
