Limited Submission Announcement

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) solicits applications for the Healthy Homes Production Program to prevent and correct significant housing-related health and safety hazards in low-income housing. This production-oriented grant program will fund preventive and corrective measures to address housing-related health and safety hazards. The program takes a comprehensive approach to addressing multiple childhood diseases and injuries in the home by focusing on housing-related hazards in a coordinated fashion, rather than addressing a single hazard at a time. HUD is especially interested in funding projects that integrate healthy homes principles and practices into existing housing rehabilitation, property maintenance, weatherization, energy improvement, and other housing improvement programs.

In addition to deficiencies in dwellings that may affect health and safety, changes in the U.S. housing stock and more sophisticated epidemiological methods and biomedical research have led to the identification of new, and often more subtle, health and safety hazards in the residential environment. While health and safety hazards tend to be found disproportionately in housing that is substandard overall, they also exist in housing that is otherwise of good quality.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 22, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) the target area and group, 2) the need or extent of the problem, 3) a summary of the proposed project, 4) partner organizations and their roles, 5) knowledge and experience of the project director and project manager, and 6) names of three MU personnel who would be qualified to serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.

Amount:

Approximately $500,000 to $1,000,000 each for a period of performance of 36 months. Cost sharing or matching is not required; however, applicants will be given points based on the amount of leveraged resources specifically committed to this program application.

Campus Deadline for Letter of Intent:

4:00 p.m., Friday, October 22, 2010

External Proposal Deadline:

November 8, 2010
