The Housing and Urban Development (HUD) uses their Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant to partner with local organizations to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately-owned housing. Through this program, lead abatement services are offered as no cost to a limited number of qualifying homeowners, landlords, and tenants.
