    Lead Hazard Reduction Program

    Program Overview
    Montgomery County, since 1995, has been a recipient of grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Lead Hazard Control. This $4.9 million grant is administered through the Montgomery County Community Development Office and has the following partners: the City of Kettering, COUNTY CORP, CityWide Development Corporation, Sunrise Center, the Dora Tate Center, Center for Healthy Communities, and the Combined Health District. The primary goal of this program is to reduce the risk of lead poisoning in targeted neighborhoods of Montgomery County by conducting lead hazard control activities in housing units. A second goal of the program is to provide education about the dangers of lead poisoning and steps families can take to protect themselves. A final goal of the program is to train low and moderate-income persons and minorities in the lead industry.
    What is Lead Poisoning and Who is at Risk?

    Lead poisoning is one of the leading environmental health threats to children today. A major cause of lead poisoning is deteriorated lead-based paint. Lead-based paint was used in or on most houses built before 1978 (the use of lead in paint was banned in the U.S. in 1978). As lead-based paint ages and deteriorates, it breaks down into a fine dust that can be inhaled or ingested by young children by hand-to-mouth activity. Lead poisoning can cause learning disabilities, lower IQs, behavioral problems, and central nervous system health effects. Lead poisoning knows no income limits, but it has been documented through various studies that families with low-moderate incomes and those living in inner cities are most likely to have children who are lead poisoned.

    What this Program Offers
    • Free lead testing. Certified risk assessors inspect homes for deteriorated paint surfaces. An inspection takes 2-4 hours, depending on size of house.
    • Education. Information and pamphlets are provided on the dangers of lead and how to reduce the risks of lead poisoning.
    • Cleaning Kit. Supplies for reducing lead hazards are given to all families receiving a risk assessment. A cleaning kit includes a bucket filled with sponges, towels, detergent, and educational information.
    • Support Services. Families receive food referrals, assistance with utilities, and other services when appropriate.
    • Grants. Financial assistance is available to those who meet income guidelines and have a child under 6 in the home.
    • Low Interest Loans. Families may qualify for low-interest loans for rehabilitation not covered by grant.
    • Professional Cleanings. If lead-based paint hazards are identified in a unit, the unit may have a professional cleaning to reduce dust levels and to stabilize paint.
    • Lead Screening for Children. Initial and follow-up screening for children age 6 and under.
