Healthy Homes Demonstration Grants
HUD is interested in supporting demonstrations of programs that provide housing interventions in lower income households that are conducted jointly through the coordination of HUD?s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH)-funded Lead Hazard Control/Healthy Homes programs and Weatherization Assistance Programs funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to determine whether this coordinated delivery of services achieves cost effectiveness and better outcomes in improving the safety and quality of homes. The coordinated assessments and interventions are expected to provide additional benefits to households through the combined mitigation of health and safety hazards and improvements in energy efficiency and comfort. These grants are intended to facilitate the leveraging of assets from both programs and support the exploration of different models of service delivery (e.g., recruitment strategies, partnerships). HUD-funded programs identify and mitigate lead-based paint and other key residential health and safety hazards such as mold and moisture, pest infestation, poor indoor air quality, radon, and injury hazards. The DOE-funded programs conduct energy audits and implement energy conservation measures, while also conducting interventions to improve health and safety (e.g., improved ventilation, installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors).
