Lead Reduction Grants Available

The City of Detroit received a $4 million grant from the U.S. Housing & Urban Development Department (HUD) to fight lead poisoning in our neighborhoods. The HUD Lead Demonstration Grant provides funding assistance for two lead hazard reduction programs administered by the Housing Services Division of the City's Planning and Development Department.

Funds are available to single-family homeowners, citywide for the removal of lead-based paint hazards from owner-occupied properties for families with children under the age of six.

Funds are available to landlords (one-to-four units), for removing lead paint hazards in rental properties that are occupied by families with children under the age of six.

For more information about the programs, please call (313) 628-2565 or (313) 224-3461.
