Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) 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
About the LSHR Amendment
On January 13, 2017, HUD published an amendment to the Lead Safe Housing Rule on responding promptly to cases of children under age 6 living in certain categories of HUD-assisted housing who have elevated blood lead levels (EBLLs).
Featured Training: Lead Safe Housing Rule Webinar Series: Subparts J and K
HUD's Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) hosted a webinar series that reviewed federal lead regulations with a focus on the LSHR activities:
- Subpart J for rehabilitation
- Subpart K for acquisition, leasing, support services, and operations
Presenters provided a step-by-step explanation of how practitioners can create healthy housing while complying and documenting compliance with the LSHR. Recordings and materials are available.
Another session on this topic will be delivered in Spring 2021.
Available LSHR Amendment Trainings
HUD offers two different trainings that provide an explanation of how Public Housing Agencies (PHAs), grantees, and owners respond to cases of EBLLs in children less than 6 years old living in a federally assisted housing unit.
