Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA government units and tribal governments for programs that protect young children from lead poisoning. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support programs that identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately-owned rental or owner-occupied housing populations.

Program funds will be awarded to applicants to accomplish the following objectives:

  1. (Targeted Units) Target lead hazard control efforts in housing units where children less than six years of age are at greatest risk of lead poisoning (pre-1960, and, especially, pre-1940 construction), which has historically included children in low-income and minority neighborhoods, to reduce the likelihood of elevated blood lead levels in these children.
  2. (Cost Effectiveness) Utilize cost-effective lead hazard control methods and approaches that ensures the long-term safety of the building occupants.
  3. (Capacity) Build local capacity of trained and certified individuals and firms to safely and effectively address lead hazards during lead hazard control, and renovation, remodeling, and maintenance activities. Another core element for capacity includes the development of comprehensive, community-based approaches to integrating this grant program within other local initiatives through public and private partnerships that address housing related health and safety hazards and or serve low income families with children under the age of six (6).
  4. (Affirmative Marketing) Establish and implement a detailed process of monitoring and ensuring that units made lead-safe units are affirmatively marketed, and priority given, to families with children under age 6 years for not less than three years.
  5. (Data Collection) Gather pre- and post-treatment data that supports and validates lead hazard control investments. Program data collected should support the evaluation of grant program activities and outcomes.
  6. (Targeted Outreach and Education) Conducting targeted outreach, affirmative marketing, education or outreach programs on lead hazard control and lead poisoning prevention designed to increase the ability of the applicant to deliver the specified lead hazard control services through this program; including educating owners of eligible rental properties, tenants, and others on the benefits and expectations of participating in this program provided by Title X of the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act.

This NOFA is offering preference points for Opportunity Zones (OZ) or Promise Zones (PZ).

Where an application involves multiple entities, each entity must meet the civil rights threshold requirement of Resolution of Civil Rights Matters.

The following are not eligible entities for this competition and applications will not be reviewed:

For Funding Restrictions, see https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/SPM/documents/Lead_Hazard_Reduction_Grant_FR_6400_N_13.pdf#page=37.

Pre-Application Information:

The application deadline is 11:59:59 pm Eastern Standard time on 08/24/2020.

HUD strongly recommends applications be submitted at least 48 hours before the deadline and during regular business hours to allow enough time to correct errors or overcome other problems.

Funding will be set aside for applicants that have never received an award under the Lead Hazard Reduction grant program. If there are an insufficient number of eligible applicants to use this set-aside, the funding will be made available to other eligible grant applicants. If there are more eligible applicants for this set-aside than can be funded using the set aside, the highest rated applicants will be awarded, and the remaining eligible applicants will be evaluated along with the remaining group of eligible applicants.

Match is required for this program. Generally, Federal sources are not allowed to be used as cost share or match unless otherwise permitted by a program’s authorizing statute (for example, HUD’s Community Development Block Grants program). The chart at https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/SPM/documents/Lead_Hazard_Reduction_Grant_FR_6400_N_13.pdf#page=15 describes the match percentage requirement, minimum percentage of Federal funds for lead hazard control activities, and maximum administrative cost (as a percentage of federal funds). The minimum match requirement applies to the federal lead hazard control requested amount for applicants for each of the four lead hazard reduction funding categories and excludes the requested Healthy Homes (HH) Supplemental funding amount.

Registration Requirements:
C. System for Award Management (SAM) and Dun and Bradstreet Universal Numbering
System (DUNS) Number.
1. SAM Registration Requirement.
Applicants must be registered with https://www.sam.gov/SAM before submitting their application. In addition, Applicants must maintain an active SAM registration with current information while they have an active Federal award or an application or plan under consideration by HUD.
2. DUNS Number Requirement.
Applicants must provide a valid DUNS number, registered and active at https://www.sam.gov/SAM, in the application. DUNS numbers may be obtained for free from Dun & Bradstreet. See https://www.dnb.com/.
3. Requirement to Register with Grants.gov.
Anyone planning to submit applications on behalf of an organization must register at grants.gov and be approved by the EBiz POC in SAM to submit applications for the organization. Registration for SAM and grants.gov is a multi-step process and can take four (4) weeks or longer to complete if data issues arise. Applicants without a valid registration cannot apply through grants.gov. Complete registration instructions and guidance are provided on grants.gov.

An applicant demonstrating good cause may request a waiver from the requirement for electronic submission. For example, a lack of available Internet access in the geographic area in which your business offices are located. Lack of SAM registration or valid DUNS is not good cause. If you cannot submit your application electronically, you must ask in writing for a waiver of the electronic grant submission requirements. HUD will not grant a waiver if HUD does not receive your written request at least 15 days before the application deadline and if you do not demonstrate good cause. An email request for a waiver received by HUD 15 days before the application is due will also be considered. If HUD waives the requirement, HUD must receive your paper application before the deadline of this NOFA. To request a waiver you must contact Yolanda Brown.
