US-HUD Grant

Reprinted with kind permission from the Asbestos and Lead Abatement Report, 2/12/96, published by Business Publishing Inc, 951 Pershing Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20910, US, 00111 800 274 6737.

The Community Development Department in Cambridge, Massachusetts has received a $2.2 million grant from the US Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) to assist property owners in deleading their homes. The grant will be administered by the department’s Lead-Safe Cambridge program, initiated in October 1994. The program aims to grant funds to property owners for lead abatement and also seeks to expand programs for temporary relocation and offer medical and educational services to low- and moderate-income tenants. In return, owners must agree to keep their homes affordable for five years after the abatement. City officials said thus far, the program has assisted more than 150 households. The HUD grant allows city officials to extend and expand the program. For more information, call 0011 1 617 549 5323.
