San Diego Lead Safety Collaborative

The City of San Diego's Lead Safety & Healthy Homes Project (LSHHP) has recently been awarded a HUD Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant. The program goals are:

  • Remediate lead hazards in 150 low income housing units, maximizing the number of children protected from lead poisoning and other housing-related hazards;
  • Building local capacity to address HUD's Healthy Home Strategy;
  • Further developing strategic relationships to promote program sustainability;
  • Continued integrating of healthy homes principles into all City housing programs;
  • Promoting Section 3 training and employment opportunities; and
  • Educating the community on healthy homes and lead related issues so that they may be better able to protect themselves.

Single family homeowners must have at least one child less than 6 years of age living in, or frequently visiting the home. Landlords of rental properties that have had lead hazards remediated through this program are eligible for listing in the "Lead Safe Housing Registry." Property owners have agreed to give priority to renting these units to families with a child under the age of six for at least three years after the property had been "cleared" of lead hazards.
