HUD Announces Stimulus Funds


WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today allocated nearly 75 percent of its funding, or $10.1 billion, made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Recovery Act includes $13.61 billion for projects and programs administered by HUD, 75 percent of which was allocated to recipients today - only one week after President Obama signed the Act into law.
Details are forthcoming regarding the requirements for the usage of the stimulus funds. For example, the statute prescribes how quickly funds must be spent, and the implementing guidance provided by OMB details new reporting requirements. See for OMB's guidance.

The Lead Hazard Reduction Program has four components:

The Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant Program assists States, Native American Tribes, cities, counties/parishes, or other units of local government in undertaking comprehensive programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately owned rental or owner-occupied housing.

The Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grant Program assists urban jurisdictions with the greatest lead-based paint hazard control needs in undertaking programs for the identification and control of lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately owned rental and owner-occupied housing units.

The Healthy Homes Demonstration Grant Program develops, demonstrates, and promotes cost-effective, preventive measures to correct multiple residential safety and health hazards that produce serious diseases and injuries in children and other sensitive subgroups such as the elderly, with a particular focus on low income households. The Healthy Homes Demonstration Program is committed to supporting HUD's strategic goal of strengthening communities by addressing housing conditions that threaten health.

The Healthy Homes Technical Studies Grant Program works to gain knowledge to improve the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of methods of evaluation and control of lead-based paint and other housing-related health and safety hazards. This supports HUD's strategic goal to strengthen communities and the associated policy priority to improve our nation's communities by improving the environmental health and safety of families living in public and privately owned housing.
