HUD Healthy Homes and Lead Paint Hazard Grant

Cook County has a Healthy Homes and Lead Paint Hazard Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that runs through May 31, 2025. This grant provides funding for CCDPH to correct Healthy home and lead paint hazards in homes located in suburban Cook County communities for families that qualify.

A family may qualify for the grant program if:

  1. The home is located within suburban Cook County,
  2. Their income is below the program limit, and
  3. There are healthy home or lead paint hazards in the home.

CCDPH will work with families to identify any healthy homes and lead paint hazards in their home and contract with a licensed contractor to fix the hazards at no cost to you. Lead hazard repairs typically include: healthy home housing hazards, painting, replacing windows, or other home repair work to remove or contain the lead paint.

Household income can not exceed the amount in the chart below for your family size.
