All lead hazard control work done must be performed utilizing HUD’s Safe Work Practices. If you are found in violation of any of these safe work practices, no grant will be awarded and additional fines/penalties may occur. Please download and review the Fact Sheet for information on what HUD requires for safe work practices. We recommend you take photos before, during, and after any work for verification of safe work practices.
We recommend you hire only lead abatement contractors, RRP-certified lead paint contractors, and lead inspectors that are fully licensed and insured and do your due diligence in hiring. Please visit the For Owners page of this site for information on hiring local lead workers.
As a property owner, you must also follow housing code and any applicable laws when you hire or self-perform renovation work on your property. You may be asked to submit copies of licenses, permits, photos, or other verification that work has been performed in a professional, workmanlike manner under this grant.
