Eligible units include one to four family residential properties. The purpose of this program is to identify and remediate lead-based paint hazards via interim controls, encapsulation, replacement or abatement methods to prevent elevated blood lead levels in children and pregnant women and alleviate the existing identified lead-based paint hazards for children with elevated blood lead levels (EBLL).
