Grants offered for lead safety compliance by property owners
The City of Toledo’s department of neighborhoods has launched a new grant program to help property owners comply with the city’s residential rental properties and lead safety compliance law.
Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said early bird matching grants are designed to incentivize owners to comply early with the law’s five-year phase-in to improve the health and wellbeing of tenants and avoid fines.
The grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Community Development Block Grant.
Owners who are qualified may receive up to 50 percent of certain costs to become compliant under the law as a reimbursable matching grant, up to $5,000 per unit.
