Healthy Homes & Lead Reduction Program (HHLR)
The City of Dallas has implemented the HHLR Program to reduce and eliminate childhood Lead poisoning along with other housing-related health & safety hazards. Studies suggest that issues like asthma and unintentional injuries are the cause of sub-standard housing conditions that can easily be prevented. Exposure to Lead-based paint, structural defects, indoor air quality, exposure to toxic chemicals & contaminants, and hazards that can cause injury can impact the health & safety of residents; leading to Lead poisoning, asthma, allergies, unintentional injuries, cancers, and other issues that can hinder the development of children.
HUD Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant (LBPHRP): $2,000,000 in grant funds available to help identify and reduce Lead-Based Paint Hazards in homes of low-income families, where children under the age of 6 reside.
HUD Healthy Homes Supplemental Grant (HHSP): $300,000 in grant funds that provide applicants with a 29-point Healthy Homes inspection to help identify and reduce health & safety hazards found in substandard housing.
