Please take notice that the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, Division of Housing and Community Resources, Office of Low Income Home Energy Program has issued a Request for Proposal for the Lead Safe Home Remediation Pilot Grant Program 2018.


To address the ongoing concern of the threat of childhood lead poisoning, the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) proposes a State-funded pilot program to fund public-private partnerships to provide lead-safe repairs and support energy efficiency in residential units built prior to 1978. Eligible units include one to four family residential properties. The purpose of this program is to identify and remediate lead-based paint hazards via interim controls, encapsulation and replacement to prevent elevated blood lead levels in children and pregnant women. Interim controls, encapsulation and replacement are defined as a set of measures designed to reduce temporarily human exposure or likely exposure to lead-based paint hazards, including specialized cleaning, repairs, maintenance, painting, temporary containment, and the ongoing monitoring of lead-based paint hazards or potential hazards. Priority will be given to proposals that serve areas with the highest level of need, based on the number of children under the age of six with elevated blood lead levels.
