HACLA Awarded $5M Grant from HUD to Reduce Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Public Housing

LOS ANGELES –The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Capital Improvements announced that the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) has been selected to receive funding under the Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program as authorized by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Public Law 116-94, enacted December 20, 2019), in the amount of $5,000,000, to evaluate and reduce leadbased paint hazards in Public Housing. The funds will enable HACLA to conduct lead-based paint risk assessments, abatements, and interim controls at Estrada Courts and Pueblo Del Rio developments.

The funds will be used for lead-based paint stabilization and replacement of windows at each property. HACLA submitted the application in November 2020 and will split the grant funds evenly between Estrada ($2.5M) and Pueblo Del Rio ($2.5M), utilizing funds from the regular Capital Fund Program to supplement the projects.

“We are extremely grateful to have been awarded this grant from HUD,” said Doug Guthrie, President & CEO of HACLA. “These funds will further our efforts to reduce lead-based paint in our Public Housing, thereby helping us to ensure our residents’ access to decent, safe, and sanitary housing.”
