Most grants are from entities outside of CDPH. Thus, interested parties should contact those entities with questions about applying for the grants and eligibility. If an entity has a grant to offer that is not listed below, please contact the CDPH Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch at (510) 620-5600 to request that it be added. The CDPH Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch encourages any who are eligible to apply for grants that reduce exposure to environmental lead hazards in California.

Estimated Total Program Funding: $30,000,000

Award Ceiling: $1,250,000

Award Floor: $500,000


​The overall purpose of the Older Adult Home Modification Program (OAHMP) is to assist experienced nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, and public housing authorities in undertaking comprehensive programs that make safety and functional home modifications and limited repairs to meet the needs of low-income elderly homeowners. The goal of the home modification program is to enable low-income elderly persons to remain in their homes through low-cost, low barrier, high impact home modifications to reduce older adults’ risk of falling, improve general safety, increase accessibility, and to improve their functional abilities in their home. This will enable older adults to remain in their homes, that is, to “age in place,” rather than move to nursing homes or other assisted care facilities.
