Since CPD is responsible for monitoring and enforcing the Lead Safe Housing Rule in regard to CPD-assisted housing, OHHLHC does not monitor CPD’s program participants for compliance. However, OHHLHC staff will work with CPD staff to determine if assisted activities trigger the Lead Safe Housing Rule and will provide technical assistance when requested. To assist in this effort, OHHLHC has developed a compliance toolkit and has several OHHLHC Field Representatives in Field Offices (see for a staff list). However:
1. Assignment of corrective actions should be consistent with established CPD procedures and practice.
2. Copies of all monitoring letters covering corrective actions based on lead-based paint reviews are to be sent to OHHLHC, Lead Programs Enforcement Division, for follow up.
3. Questions for OHHLHC regulatory enforcement should be addressed by correspondence to: Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, Lead Programs Enforcement Division, 451 7th St. S.W., Washington, D.C. 20410; or by calling (202) 755-1785.
