Fiscal Year 2021-22 Community Development Lead Grant
Kenneth C. Gillie, Jr.
The City of Danville has received a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Lead Hazard Reduction Grant in the amount of $1,234,769 and an accompanying Healthy Homes Grant in the amount of $400,000. The City will match this grant with $145,231 in unspent HUD CDBG funds.
The City applied for a Lead Hazard Reduction Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This grant is to be used to help address lead hazards in homes constructed prior to the outlaw of lead in interior products in 1978. Since the City of Danville has many homes constructed prior to this date, it qualified to apply.
The funding received will be used to assess up to 100 homes for lead hazards, and remediate an anticipated 83 homes during the grant period. This is anticipated to be the first phase of grants issued by HUD to address lead issues.
It is recommended that City Council approve the attached Ordinance amending the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Appropriation Ordinance by increasing revenues to anticipate the receipt of the grant funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the amount of $1,234,769, from Healthy Homes in the amount of $400,000, and a local match of $145,231 from unspent HUD CDBG funds.
