WE ARE NO LONGER EXCEPTING APPLICATIONS.
The Department of Housing and Community Development has created this grant to help property owners become compliant with Toledo Municipal Code Chapter 1760 Residential Rental Properties and Lead Safety Compliance (“Lead Ordinance”). Early Bird Matching Grants are designed to incentivize owners to comply early in the ordinance’s 5-year phase-in to improve the health and well-being of tenants and avoid costly fines.
Funding for this grant is from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grants (CDBG). Owners who are qualified may receive up to 50% of certain costs to become compliant under the Lead Ordinance as a reimbursable matching grant, up to a maximum of $5,000 per unit.
Funds are limited, so grants are awarded to eligible applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis.
WE ARE NO LONGER EXCEPTING APPLICATIONS, as funds are exhausted. Be sure to check back in the near future.
