December 22, 2010 — WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan announced that more than 3,800 children are safe from dangerous lead-based paint hazards and other health and safety risks due to grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and HUD’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.

Split into two categories, lead hazard control and healthy homes grants provided nearly $100 million to 53 local programs in 20 states and the District of Columbia to protect children from lead and other health and safety hazards and create jobs. These grants have already assisted more than 3,800 children, exceeding the program’s original goal of 3,500.
