HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes has just launched a Lead Safe Housing Rule Toolkit with sample forms, checklists, and flowcharts for HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule (24 CFR Part 35) to support healthy and lead safe homes. These tools help practitioners to understand and comply with the federal lead rules. The Lead Safe Housing Rule applies to almost all federally assisted, pre-1978 housing, while the Lead Disclosure Rule applies to almost all pre-1978 homes being sold or leased/rented, regardless of federal assistance. Users of the toolkit will learn how to prepare to administer projects, implement key project tasks, and keep records for compliance.
The toolkit provides information and tools for topics including:
Lead Rule Basics
Acquisition, Leasing, Support Services, and Operations
Tenant-Based Rental Assistance
Lead Hazard Reduction
Responding to a Child with an Elevated Blood Lead Level
Interested members can go through each topic linearly or use the side navigation bar to jump straight to the activity that applies to their program and access the necessary tools. Members can explore the toolkit here.
Members may also sign up for the Lead Safe Housing and Healthy Homes email list-serve. The HUD Exchange Lead Safe Housing and Healthy Homes Listserv provides email updates on training opportunities, resources, and program support related to creating lead safe and healthy housing.
