House and Hand logo BLUE.png       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.


Qualified applicants will receive:

  • Test your children & expectant mothers for Lead poisoning
  • Test your home for the presence of Lead-Based Paint
  • Have Lead, Health & Safety hazards reduced from your home by a licensed contractor
