Lead-Based Paint Final Rule Compliance

On June 20, PHAs received an informational Power Point from HUD Field Offices regarding compliance with HUD’s Lead-Based Paint Final Rule. PHAs must comply with HUD’s Lead-Based Paint Final Rule by July, 13. The final rule amends HUD’s lead-based paint regulations on reducing blood lead levels in children under age 6 who reside in federally-owned or -assisted housing that was built pre-1978, and formally adopts the revised definition of “elevated blood lead levels” (EBLLs) in children under the age of 6 in accordance to the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). HUD’s Power Point can also be found in NAHRO’s Public Housing Resource Center (members only). For more information on HUD’s Lead-Based Paint Final Rule, click here (members only).
