Do you know how the amendment in the Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) affects your work as a public housing agency (PHA), grantee, or assisted housing owner? HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) is pleased to announce the 2019 Lead Safe Housing Rule Amendment Trainings coming to a HUD Office near you.

These free 3-hour trainings help you review federal lead regulations and discuss the LSHR Amendment for pre-1978 housing.
