Housing Program Division
Myrna Rodriguez Esquivel, M.S.
The City of San Antonio’s Green and Healthy Homes (SAGHH), formerly known as the Lead Based Paint Hazard Control Program (LBPHCP), provides assistance to owners and landlords of residential properties (up to a four-plex) in creating healthy, safe, energy-efficient and sustainable homes for families and children. The SAGHH is working to prevent and correct housing-related health and safety hazards, such as addressing lead-based paint, mold, household asthma triggers and fire hazards. Other services offered through SAGHH include creating an energy efficient home by partnering with CPS Weatherization program, and addressing water conservation through SAWS.
You must qualify for the services to receive assistance. The requirements for services are listed below. The homes must be structurally sound to receive assistance through the SAGHH. We are not a home repair program, and would therefore, not be able to address repairs that need to be made to the home.
Upon receipt of the application, the City will determine your eligibility for each service listed above. If your house meets the eligibility criteria, the City will determine the timeline for assistance based accordingly. The extent of the work and the approximate time required to accomplish the work will be explained in detail once a project is deemed to be eligible for assistance. The funding is limited, which restricts the SAN ANTONIO’S GREEN AND HEALTHY HOMES to a minimum number of residential structures. The projects will be chosen on the basis of priority such as children with lead poisoning and clients with asthma.
