Lead poisoning is dangerous and can have deadly effects on anyone living in a house that has lead based paint on the walls. The Department of Housing and Urban Development took a large leap towards avoiding lead poisoning by offering 39 million dollars in grant money in order to clean up lead based contaminants in large urban cities.
HUD is calling this the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grant Program. HUD will specifically target cities that have high incidences of lead poisonings and offer them grant money to help.
HUD plans to offer the funding to keep people and children safe from the dangers of lead poisoning and decrease the chances of future tenants and occupants of properties from having lad poisoning disasters. Find more information on HUD Programs.
