City Grants Available for Lead Paint Hazard Reduction

Post Date:10/14/2019 2:00 PM
The City’s Neighborhood Development Department is recognizing National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week – October 20-26 – by reminding residents of its Lead Safe Housing Program.

Are children under six living or frequently visiting your house or rental unit? Was your home built before 1978? If so, apply for lead-based paint hazard reduction assistance.

Neighborhood Development has grant funding of up to $30,000 for contracted construction work such as replacing windows and doors and wrapping exterior trim at homes where lead-based paint hazards exist.

If other hazards exist, the City may offer up to $5,000 more to correct the issues.
