Lead Grant Applications Streamlined

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

The city of Toledo has streamlined lead grant applications for owner occupied and rental lead abatement grant assistance. The new applications are now nine pages for landlords and five pages for owner occupied applications – both down from 17 pages previously.

“We continue to streamline the lead grant application process and we want the public to know about the availability of lead abatement grant funds,” said Rosalyn B. Clemens, commissioner of housing for the city’s Department of Neighborhood and Business Development.

The Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant Program, provided by the city, is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes. It provides financial assistance to help control lead paint hazards in residential units located in the city of Toledo. Assistance is provided to qualified homeowners and landlords in the form of a grant, with highest priority given to units occupied by lead-poisoned children under the age of six or at least one pregnant female past her first trimester.

“The grant allows us to conduct lead hazard control and healthy homes work in residential units located within the city of Toledo,” Ms. Clemens said. “The funds are used to identify lead hazards in eligible units, the remediation of those hazards through appropriate control or abatement procedures, and other activities such as training and outreach. Financial assistance can include, but is not limited to paint stabilization, replacement windows, doors, and siding.”
