LEAD PAINT PROGRAM

LEAD HOUSE 2

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded more than $314 million to 77 state and local government agencies to protect children and families from lead-based paint and home health hazards.  Montgomery County is proud to announce an award of $1,352,868 in grant funds for this new lead based paint reduction program.

This new Lead Hazard Control Program will enable the county to address lead dangers in approximately 80 single-family homes, with a goal of healthier and safer homes for low-moderate income families with young children.  With more than 20,000 homes in Montgomery County built prior to 1978, an increased risk of exposure to lead hazards for those who reside in these aging houses is present. Receipt of this federal funding will provide lead hazard remediation work in owner-occupied single-family homes outside the city limits of Conroe. 

Households with children under the age of six and pregnant women are most at risk of becoming lead poisoned.  Inhalation of lead dust from old windowsills and consumption of flaking paint chips are two common causes of elevated blood lead levels.  This is an income-based program at no cost to eligible families who must also meet the low-moderate income requirements.
