Funding Eligibility

Eligible Applicants:
  • State governments
  • Additional Information: Only cities, counties/parishes, and other units of local government, and certain States and Native American Tribes (those that have an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
    • (EPA) authorized lead abatement certification program on the submission deadline) are eligible applicants. Multiple entities may apply as a consortium, including nonprofit co-applicants, provided an eligible entity is the principal (lead) applicant responsible for ensuring compliance with NOFO requirements, and each entity must meet the Resolution of Civil Rights Matters threshold requirement. If your department or agency does not report directly or through a direct chain of command to your jurisdiction’s chief executive officer (governor, county executive, mayor, etc.), you must identify the specific statute(s) (e.g., 1 MyState Revised Code 2345) establishing it as a part of the government, and either attach the relevant wording, or include the specific freely accessible web address(es) in the application. An applicant with at least 3,500 pre-1940 occupied rental housing units (either alone or through a consortium) may apply under the Highest Lead-Based Paint Abatement Needs grants category for up to $8,000,000.  An applicant that would be a first-time grantee or whose previous lead hazard control grant ended two (2) or more years before the deadline may request up to $4,000,000. An applicant whose previous grant ended less than two (2) years ago may request up to $5,000,000 (Other Jurisdictions). An applicant requesting funding under the Highest Lead-Based Paint Abatement Needs category that does not meet the applicable criteria will be put into the general applicant’s pool and the requested amount lowered to the maximum for the category under which they are assigned, i.e., $4,000,000 or $5,000,000, as above, if the requested funding exceeded the applicable maximum. An applicant that is eligible for a grant under the Areas with the Highest Lead-Based Paint Abatement Needs grant category may choose to apply under the Other Jurisdictions category instead. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.
