HUD's Oversight of Lead Based Paint Remediation

Summary

HUD OIG is auditing HUD's oversight of lead based paint remediation.  Lead-based paint hazards present a health risk to tenants, particularly children, and the effects of lead poisoning may permanently alter the lives of those exposed.  The objective is to determine whether HUD has adequate oversight of lead-based paint remediation in public housing.
