The City of Toledo, Department of Neighborhoods, launched a new grant program today to help property owners become compliant with the city’s Residential Rental Properties and Lead Safety Compliance law, Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced.

Early Bird Matching Grants are designed to incentivize owners to comply early with the law’s five-year phase-in to improve the health and wellbeing of tenants and avoid fines.

The grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Community Development Block Grant. Owners who are qualified may receive up to 50 percent of certain costs to become compliant under the law as a reimbursable matching grant, up to a maximum of $5,000 per unit.
