Montgomery County Lead Program
*As of 6.30.13, Montgomery County no longer has grant funds to address lead-based paint hazards. Funds are also not available for risk assessments.
Our goal is to control and prevent housing/environmental conditions which might result in childhood lead poisoning. This is accomplished by providing educational information to the public, coordination with various agencies rehabilitating targeted high-risk affordable housing, investigation and early response to families of lead-poisoned children, enforcement of applicable laws and response to community complaints and inquiries.
The Lead Program is responsible for:
1. Childhood Lead Poisoning Investigation and Outreach
- Investigation of lead-poisoned children
- Enforcement of environmental regulations/ordinances
- Preventive outreach/education to families of lead-burdened children
Most of the activities under Section 1 are undertaken by Public Health-Dayton/Montgomery County.
2. HUD-Funded Grant Program
- HUD funds are used, when available, to control lead-hazards in pre-1978 affordable housing occupied by families with children ages 6 and younger in targeted high-risk areas of the County.
- Funds may be used in owner-occupied units, rental units and vacant units that will be marketed to families that meet the income criteria.
- Housing that has been made lead-safe by HUD lead grant funding or other means is entered in the Lead-Safe Housing Registry.
3. Community Complaint Response, Education and Outreach
- Information/referral to lead-related questions provided to the public
- Site investigation performed as needed
- Group presentations
- Educational materials provided to Montgomery County residents
4. Services to Other Departments
- Lead Paint inspection, project design, monitoring and final clearance testing services for other HUD-funded housing programs, on request
