The bill creates the rural housing and development asbestos and
lead paint abatement pilot grant program (pilot grant program) in the
department of public health and environment (department) to award
grants, beginning July 1, 2025, to local governments in rural areas to
offset costs associated with the abatement of asbestos and lead paint in
housing, commercial buildings, and other development projects. To
receive a grant, a local government must submit an application to the
department. The application must:
  • Describe a voluntary clean-up plan that satisfies existing
statutory requirements concerning clean-up of hazardous
materials; and
  • Include an assessment of needs of rural communities.
The owner of any property that receives asbestos or lead paint
abatement, the costs of which abatement are paid in full or in part by
grant money from the pilot grant program, is ineligible to apply for a no
action determination concerning the property.
A local government that receives a grant from the pilot grant
program must either acquire any necessary permits from the air pollution
control division before commencing asbestos or lead paint abatement or
require any person that proceeds with asbestos or lead paint abatement on
behalf of the local government to first acquire such permits.
The bill creates the rural housing and development asbestos and
lead paint abatement fund (fund) in the state treasury. The fund consists
of money generated from penalties and fines collected in association with
violations of laws concerning hazardous materials and any other money
that the general assembly may appropriate or transfer to the fund. The
department may expend money in the fund to award grants.
The pilot grant program and the fund are repealed, effective July
1, 2027.
