Mr. Wells property was one of the many properties that have taken advantage of the city's Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Program through the city's Office of Housing.
Mayor Sarno stated, "This vital and important deleading program will help provide for the safety of families and their children within their own homes."
Lead abatement funding is available citywide, for homes with qualifying households (earning up to 80% of area median income, with at least one child under the age of 6 years).
- Owner-occupants residing in a single family home may be eligible for up to $20,000 in grant funding.
- Owner-occupants residing in one unit of a 2-4 family dwelling may be eligible for a $20,000, deferred payment, 0% interest loan.
- Investment owners may be eligible for a $13,000, deferred payment, 0% loan.
Contracted lead abatement work will be performed by licensed lead abatement contractors and should result in a Letter of Full Deleading Compliance (LOFDC) for the eligible units.
