The Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Program of Westmoreland County

The Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Program of Westmoreland County is a Federally Funded Grant Program which focused on homes built prior to 1978 since, they are more likely to contain lead-based paint. Additional requirements include: households must meet maximums income limits per number of household members as listed on the flyer. *Eligible households must also have a child(ren) 6 years or under (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 at a minimum of six hours per week, their home was built prior to 1978, and the grandparents meet the income requirements for household, they could qualify. This program covers lead-based paint abatement 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 program focuses on young children because, they are the most impacted by the effects of lead poisoning but, it also effects adults as well.

We also need certified, licensed, Lead-Abatement contractors as well. The program will pay for licensed contractors to become lead-abatement certified. This is a great employment opportunity!
