Protecting children and families from the dangers of lead-based paints is our priority.
The Waterbury Lead and Healthy Homes Program is offering funding assistance to abate lead-based paint hazard and eliminate other housing related hazards.
HUD launched the Healthy Homes Initiative component to help protect children and families from housing related health and safety hazards. The purpose of the Healthy Homes Program is to identify current and potential causes of childhood illness and injury caused by the home itself. The funding from HUD addresses housing related hazards, including: lead, mold, allergens, asthma, carbon monoxide, home safety, pesticides and possibly more.
Healthy Homes assessments will be provided for each property applying for lead safe renovations and shared by Waterbury Lead & Healthy Homes in collaboration with Eversource, New Opportunities, Inc. and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
