LEAD PAINT PROGRAM
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.
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.
