Lead Poisoning Prevention
Swab Team Services Grant
The Minnesota Department of Health Lead and Healthy Homes Program (LHHP) is announcing the availability of swab team services grants for the 2018–19 biennium. "Swab team services" are defined as activities that provide protection from lead hazards primarily through the use of interim controls.
These grants are intended to train workers, provide lead screening, education, outreach, and swab team services for residential properties. Projects that provide AmeriCorps funding or positions, or leverage matching funds, as part of the delivery of the services will be given priority for the grant funds. In addition, proposed projects should address health equity.
The total amount of the grant funding for the entire grant period (October 1, 2017–June 30, 2019) is up to $958,000, or $479,000 per year. The grant funds are dependent upon the availability of state lead funds approved by the legislature to MDH. Any awarding of final grant agreements as a result of this RFP process is subject to final approval by the Commissioner of Health.
Applicants must complete the Swab Team Services Grant Application (PDF). Additional instructions are provided in the Swab Team Services Grant RFP (PDF) and the Swab Team Services Grant Application.
