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 (PMAD) provides program management of OLHCHH's grant programs and cooperative agreements.

 -   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 administrative oversight of OLHCHH's grants and cooperative agreements.

 -   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.
