Lead Hazard Control Grant Program
The Ohio Department of Health’s Ohio Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (OHHLPP) has been awarded 2.1 million dollars by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to perform lead-hazard control work in Ohio. The Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant is a three year award. OHHLPPP’s partners for the project include the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies; Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa, and Seneca Counties (WSOS) Community Action; Corporation for Ohio Appalachian Development; and the Ohio Healthy Homes Network (www.ohhn.org). Three hundred-thousand dollars in match funds are being provided by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and the Ohio Housing Trust Fund. The grant will enable OHHLPPP and its partners to conduct lead hazard control and healthy homes work in 37 counties (see map below) in Ohio. Specifically, the funds will be used for the identification of lead hazards in units occupied by children who have been lead poisoned or are at-risk of becoming lead poisoned; the remediation of the lead hazards through appropriate control or abatement procedures; and, ancillary activities such as training, outreach, and casework.
