Enrollment in HHP with Hennepin County Housing, Community Works, & Transit Department (HCWT) will assist with identifying and fixing healthy homes hazards found in homes of those who income qualify by HUD standards.
HCWT or its agents (SRC) will access the enrolled property to conduct a Healthy Homes inspection to determine if hazards are present and again after the work in completed for a final inspection. Enrolled households must agree to maintain the dwelling unit to reduce hazards after work completion.
All occpuants must be protected from lead-based paint hazard reduction activities. All enrolled household members must agree to abide by the occupant protection plan developed specifically to protect the household members during the work. This plan may require that the household members relocate from the dwelling unit during the work.
All children residing in the dwelling unit under the age of six years will have their blood tested for lead prior to the start of the project. Household members are responsible for obtaining blood lead testing and any needed follow-up care for child(ren) under their care. The household members are responsible for the cost of any medical care indicated due to elevated blood lead levels.
Participation in the HHP is voluntary and for the benefit of the household members. As a condition of participation, household members agree to hold Hennepin County and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) harmless and agree not to commence any legal action, sue or make any claim against Hennepin County and HUD for any normal activities of the grant program. Hazards may be identified that cannot be fixed by the grant program. Household members will be given information on how to minimize the household members' exposure to those hazards and it will be the household members' responsibility to follow the recommedations.
