Lead Safe Housing Rule Training

These webinars and resources help users review federal lead regulations and the Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) for pre-1978 housing. The LSHR applies to all target housing that is federally owned and/or target housing receiving federal assistance.

Specific requirements depend on housing factors including:

  • Type and amount of financial assistance
  • Property being disposed of or assisted by the federal government
  • Age of the structure
  • Whether the dwelling is rental or owner-occupied
