About Us

The Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) provides funds to state and local governments to develop cost-effective ways to reduce lead-based paint hazards. In addition, the office enforces HUD's lead-based paint regulations, provides public outreach and technical assistance, and conducts technical studies to help protect children and their families from health and safety hazards in the home.

 -   The Programs Division provides program management, oversight and technical assistance of OLHCHH's grant programs.

 -   The Regional Management and Technical Services Division provides program and technical support to our grantees and stakeholders. Each of these individuals works in a HUD field office as a regional point of contact on issues and activities.

 -   The Lead Programs Enforcement Division ensures regulatory compliance with the Lead-Based Paint Disclosure Rule and the Lead Safe Housing Rule.

 -   The Grants Services Division provides the overall supervision of the grant's management life cycle. This consists of administrative, negotiation, awarding, ensuring compliance to meet federal regulations or agency policies, financial audits, regulatory review and award closeout for the OLHCHH's grant and cooperative agreement.

 -   The Policy and Standards Division develops healthy homes guidelines and standards, oversees research studies, and provides technical assistance on policy issues for OLHCHH and other HUD Program Offices.
