The focus for the Healthy Homes grant is on water infiltration/indoor air quality and anything that falls within HUD's Eight Principles of a Healthy Home.
Homes or rental properties built before 1978 are eligible for the Lead Paint and Healthy Homes program. If lead is found, the home will be made lead safe. There is additional money available to make improvements to the home to make it safer and healthier for children.
