GET THE LEAD OUT!
“Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Program!”
This program covers lead-based paint removal and possibly other hazards that are related to lead poisoning in the home e.g. lead in windows, siding, and railings, and/or contributing factors to lead poisoning such as a leaky roof (water causing paint that contains lead to chip). This Federally Funded, Grant Program focuses on homes built prior to 1978 because, they are more likely to contain lead-based paint. Additional requirements include: households that meet maximums income limits per number of household members as listed on the flyer. *Eligible households must also have a child(ren) under 6 years (that includes a pregnant woman) that either live in the home, or visits the residence at least 6 hours a week for 60 hours or more per year. For instance, if a grandparent cares for a grandchild who is under the age of 6 years in their home and their home was built prior to 1978, and the grandparents meet the income requirements for household, they could qualify.
