Louisville Metro Government’s offices of Housing and Community Development has received $2.9 million from HUD for Lead Based Paint Hazard Control activities. The offices are fortunate to have this grant allowing children in Louisville/Jefferson County the opportunity to live in Lead-Safe homes. The Lead-Safe Louisville Project is a partnership between the Offices of Housing and Community Development and the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness. 
The purpose of the Lead-Safe Louisville Program is to eliminate lead hazards that exist in both owner-occupied and rental units in the Metro Louisville area, especially those in which children under six years of age reside. Houses and apartments built before 1978 are most likely to have lead-based paint which can create a hazard to its inhabitants. Key risk factors are chipping or peeling paint on doors, windows, woodwork or exterior siding. Children are particularly prone to lead poisoning in such environments.
Eligible units are based on the following:
  • Built prior to 1978
  • Child or children under the age of six and/or pregnant women live in or visit the home approximately 6 or more hours a week
  • Income is below or at 80% AMI based on the size of the family
  • Homeowners must have homeowners' insurance
  • Have not been assisted through the program before
Persons assisted through this program can be homeowners (owner-occupied) or landlords, though the occupant, homeowners and tenants, must meet the income qualifications.
