LSHR Toolkit: Prepare

Prepare to Participate and Manage Compliance in a TBRA Program

Owners and administrators must create and maintain records to document compliance. Use the tools here as a guide through the process.

Check for Exemptions: Some properties and situations create exemptions to various parts of the rules for the property or a repair project.

Tool Description
LSHR Screening on Exemption or Limited Exemption Determines if all assisted units are partially or fully exempt. Complete and retain in records.

Unless the unit is exempt, the rules for TBRA apply only to assisted units occupied by children under the age of 6 years old. TBRA is the only subpart where the LSHRs are triggered by the occupancy of a child. The basic approach is to ensure units are inspected, paint is properly maintained, and to respond if a child has an EBLL. Being familiar with the rules and keeping good records from before and during occupancy of all measures is essential.
