Understanding and Ensuring Compliance with HUD’s New Lead Safe Housing Rule for Assisted Housing

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), on January 13, 2017, published an amendment to the Lead Safe Housing Rule on responding promptly to cases of children under the age of 6 years living in certain categories of HUD-assisted housing, who have elevated blood lead levels. This rule became effective on February 13, 2017 and has a compliance date of July 13, 2017.

According to the new HUD rule, the housing provider must test the home for potential lead exposure within 15 days when a child under the age of 6 resides in HUD assisted housing. Home must be tested for hazards from lead based paint, dust or soils and if found they must be controlled within 30 days.

This rule will impact approximately 3 million HUD assisted units built before 1978. Approximately 500,000 children under the age of 6 reside in these homes.

The regulation sets hazard reduction requirements that give much greater emphasis than existing regulations to reducing lead in house dust. Scientific research has found that exposure to lead in dust is the most common way young children become lead poisoned. Therefore, the new regulation requires dust testing after paint is disturbed to make sure the home is lead-safe.  Specific requirements depend on whether the housing is being disposed of or assisted by the federal government, and also on the type and amount of financial assistance, the age of the structure, and whether the dwelling is rental or owner-occupied.

The guidance is intended to provide advice to the public on how to understand the lead-based paint hazards and how those hazards affect the general population and especially children under the age of six.

According to HUD, “these Guidelines can be used by those who are required to identify and control lead paint hazards, as well as property owners, landlords, and child-care center operators.  They offer helpful advice on renovations in older housing, lead-based paint inspections and risk assessments, and where to go for help.  The Guidelines also outline what users have to do to meet requirements and recommendations; identify training – and if applicable, certification – required for people who conduct the work; and describe how the work should be done.”

This webinar by expert speaker Paul Flogstad will discuss the impact of this new guidance and will also cover all of the changes and guidelines related to the previous rulings.
