The Office of Public and Indian Housing reissues the solicitation for its Lead-Based Paint Capital Fund Program (CFDA Number: 14.888) (Funding Opportunity Number: FR-6100-N-42A). Public housing authorities use these funds to evaluate and reduce lead-based paint hazards implement comprehensive programs to identify and remediate lead-based paint hazards in public housing.
The program provides public and Indian housing authorities with the opportunity to design and test innovative, locally-designed strategies to help residents find employment and become self-sufficient and increase housing choices for low-income families. MTW gives PHAs exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and more flexibility with how they use their federal funds, including Sec. 8.
The program addresses poverty among public housing residents by incentivizing and enabling employment through earned income disregards for working families, and a set of services designed to support work including employer linkages, job placement and counseling, educational advancement, and financial counseling. PHAs use these funds to develop locally-based initiatives to increase earnings and advance employment outcomes for public housing residents. These initiatives must improve employment and earnings outcomes for public housing residents through supports, such as work readiness, employer linkages, job placement and financial literacy.
