Lead Hazard Reduction Grant Opportunity for Community Organizations in Portland

The Portland Water Bureau’s award-winning Lead Hazard Reduction Program (LHRP) provides education, outreach, testing, and remediation to those at high-risk for lead exposure by working with local agencies and non-profits that are experienced in lead education.

The LHRP doesn’t just focus on hazards from lead in water but all hazards posed by lead. In Portland, the most common source of lead exposure is from lead-based paint. The program targets those most at risk for lead poisoning by providing resources to reduce lead hazards in homes, free blood lead testing, and community education and outreach regarding lead hazards.

The LHRP was developed in coordination with state and local public health agencies to comply with the federal Lead and Copper Rule.

Apply for a Lead Hazard Reduction Grant

Community organizations and governmental agencies that conduct lead hazard reduction education and outreach services in the Portland-area are encouraged to apply for a 2017-18 Portland Water Bureau Lead Hazard Reduction Program grant.

If your organization has identified a need for lead hazard reduction in your community and have ideas for addressing that need, please consider submitting an application.

The application is available online.

Application Deadline

Applications are due to the Lead Hazard Reduction Program by Friday, March 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.  If you have any questions, please contact the Lead Hazard Reduction Program at (503) 823-1547.
