Everything you need to be lead-safe!
As an owner of a 1-4-unit residential rental property or family childcare home in Toledo, Ohio that was built before 1978, you are required to have your property inspected and certified lead-safe under TMC 1760 “Residential Rental Properties and Lead Safety Compliance” also known as the Toledo Lead Ordinance. This requirement is being phased-in by census tract over several compliance deadlines.
Funding is Available!
The City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods currently has two grant programs available to help owners become lead-safe:
Early Bird Matching Grant: created to help rental owners and family childcare home operators become compliant with Toledo’s new Lead Ordinance. This grant will reimburse 50% of most compliance-related costs, up to $5,000 per unit.
- Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant: designed to assist eligible homeowners and landlords in the identification and remediation of lead hazards in eligible units within the City of Toledo. Under this program, the City coordinates and manages the assessment and any abatement-related work. Owner-occupants may receive up to $16,000 of assistance, and rental owners can receive up to $14,000. CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING MORE APPLICATIONS
