The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced it will offer several grants to help remove housing-related health hazards such as lead-based paint removal from low-income homes.

“These grants are critical for states, counties, and cities who are on the front lines of protecting our children from lead hazards and other residential hazards,” says Jon Gant, director of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control. “We look forward to communities applying for these grants so that they can help make older housing safer and healthier for children.”

The grants available include:

Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control (LHC) and the Lead Hazard Reduction (LHRD) grant programs: These grants will help identify and control lead-based paint hazards in privately owned housing for rental or owner-occupants.
Healthy Homes Production: A grant program that aims to help public and private entities address several housing-related hazards at the same time.
Asthma Interventions in Public and Assisted Multifamily Housing Grant: Grants that will help to evaluate programs for the control of asthma among residents of federally assisted multifamily housing.

HUD is making the grants available through its Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control, Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration, Healthy Homes Production, and Asthma Interventions in Public and Assisted Multifamily Housing Grant Programs.

The application deadline for all of the grants above is June 9, 2011. For more information, visit www.grants.gov or www.hud.gov.
