HUD New Final Rule on Lead Safe Housing

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

On January 13, 2017, HUD published an amendment to the Lead Safe Housing Rule on responding promptly to cases of children under age 6 living in certain categories of HUD-assisted housing who have elevated blood lead levels. This rule is effective February 13, 2017 and with a compliance date of July 13, 2017.

This rule will cover about 3 million HUD-assisted housing units built before 1978, the year lead-based paint was banned for residential use. Of these homes, about 500,000 are estimated to have children under age six residing in them.

When a child under age six resides in HUD-assisted housing and has an elevated blood level, the housing provider will have to test the home and other potential sources of the child’s lead exposure within 15 days, and ensure that hazards from lead-based paint, dust, or soil are controlled within 30 days. The housing provider must also report the case to HUD so the Department can ensure that follow-up is completed on time.

The rule generally applies to work performed in target housing units receiving HUD housing assistance, such as rehabilitation or acquisition assistance. The program participant governmental jurisdiction, non-profit, community organization or the property owner who accepts HUD funds) becomes responsible for compliance with this rule and is referred to as the designated party (or DP). Renovation firms may include, for example, for-profit contractors, non-profit organizations, or a designated party using its own employees for renovation.

The Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) applies to all federally-assisted housing. Depending on the nature of work and the dollar amount of federal investment in the property, certain requirements must be complied with in handling lead-based paint. Our expert Paul Flogstad will cover those here.
