Whenever a loan or grant is provided pursuant to P.L.2003, c. 311 (C.52:27D-437.1 et al.), the address of the multifamily housing, single-family home or two-family home and the details concerning the project shall be entered into a registry which shall be maintained by the department.  The department shall enter onto the registry information for any other housing which it may have concerning the lead-safe status of such housing.  The housing shall be categorized as either:

a. lead-free, which shall include any housing constructed after 1977 and housing certified to be free of lead-based paint by a certified inspector;

b. lead-abated, including housing where lead-based paint hazards have been permanently abated;

c. lead-hazard controlled, including housing in which preventative maintenance practices and interim controls have been implemented;  or

d. lead-free interior, which shall include housing certified to have a lead-free interior by a certified inspector.

The purpose of the registry shall be to supply a list from which lead-safe housing can be easily identified, and through which the State's progress in rendering housing lead hazard controlled may be tracked.
