TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Toledo officials say the city has received nearly $3 million in federal money to help rid homes and rental units of lead and mold hazards.

The Blade reports (https://bit.ly/2ubxFNA ) the $2.9 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant announced last week allocates most of the money to lead-related improvements and $400,000 for treating other environmental hazards like mold.

The money will cover improvements at an estimated 145 housing units in Toledo.

A city spokeswoman says low-income residents or landlords with low-income tenants can apply for the grants, which will cover a variety of lead-based repairs and improvements.

Toledo has a lead-safe rental ordinance that requires properties built before 1978 to be inspected and cleared of lead hazards before they’re rented.
