Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, and IHEs to verify the effectiveness of health, safety, and energy interventions in lower-income households. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with public health entities and medical providers to leverage funding.

HUD through this NOFO is interested in supporting demonstrations in up to 5 communities that provide housing interventions in lower-income households that are conducted jointly through the coordination of HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH)-funded Lead Hazard Reduction Healthy Homes programs (LHR/HH) and programs funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) to determine whether this coordinated delivery of services achieves cost-effectiveness and better outcomes in improving the safety and energy efficiency of homes. The coordinated assessments and interventions are expected to provide additional benefits to households through the combined mitigation of health and safety hazards and improvements in energy efficiency and comfort. These grants are intended to facilitate the leveraging of assets from both programs and support the exploration of different models of service delivery (e.g., recruitment strategies, partnerships). HUD-funded programs identify and mitigate lead-based paint and other key residential health and safety hazards such as mold and moisture, pest infestation, poor indoor air quality, radon, and injury hazards. The DOE-funded programs conduct energy audits and implement energy conservation measures, while also conducting interventions to improve health and safety (e.g., improved ventilation, installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors).

The following are the major goals and objectives of this NOFO:

  1. Demonstrate effective strategies for coordination between Lead Hazard Control/Healthy Homes (LHC) and Weatherization programs that maximize program efficiencies and benefits to occupants.
  2. Reduce Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) deferrals through coordination with LHC programs.
  3. Demonstrate sustainable models of inter-program cooperation, including data sharing, reporting, and targeting/recruiting clients.
  4. Demonstrate effective models for the sustainable financing of coordinated healthy homes/weatherization interventions.
  5. Support the collection of data to evaluate the housing interventions conducted through interprogram coordination (e.g., program cost efficiencies that can be achieved, improvements in indoor environmental quality, improved health outcomes, additional safety benefits to households)
