Lead Hazard Reduction Program
What Is the Lead Hazard Reduction Program?
The Lead Hazard Reduction Program (LHRP) is a grant-funded program that reduces lead hazards in the home through cost effective and sustainable interventions. Some of these interventions include:
- Window replacement
- Door replacement
- Wall stabilization
- Minimal structural repairs
LHRP helps to determine the presence and location of existing lead hazards and works with applicants to design and intervention to make the home safe for the family and children that live there.
What are the qualifications?
The program is available for families with a pregnant woman or child living in the house age 6 or under. LHRP will consider clients who do not have a child living in the house but spends 20 or more hours per week at the property. Both homeowners and landlords may apply to the program. Landlords are expected to contribute a portion of the cost of the lead hazard reduction services. Funding is provided in the form of either a grant or a loan, depending on income and financial status of clients.
