This program is designed to fund the cost of controlling lead paint hazards in low-income housing. Grant funding is available in the form of five-year forgivable loans for both rental and owner-occupied housing units built before 1978. This program accepts referrals from partner agenices, property owners and tenants to inspect older homes with young children. To be eligible, units must house or be regularly visited by at least one child age six or younger or a pregnant woman. All work is completed by certified lead abastement contractors selected by the program.
