LEAD-BASED PAINT HAZARD CONTROL PROGRAM (LHCP)

 What is LHCP? Woman with small child

The LHCP’s primary objective is the delivery of lead hazard control services to pre-1978 low-income households to ensure lead-safe housing. The program targets households occupied by a child under the age of six and/or by a child with elevated lead blood levels.

CSD partners with five community-based organizations to provide lead-hazard control services in seven counties throughout the state.

 What does the program do?

The LHCP delivers lead hazard control services to eligible low-income households occupied by young children to ensure lead-safe housing. Services include evaluation and remediation of lead-based paint in residential homes.

CSD’s LHCP is offered in seven counties: Fresno, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Tulare, Sacramento, Sutter and Yuba. However, there are several other programs available to consumers, and counties and cities are able to contract directly with the U.S. Department of Housing (HUD) to provide lead remediation services.

 Can this program help you?

If the following questions apply to your household, the LHCP may be able to help make your home safe from the hazards of lead paint:

  • Was your home built before 1978?
  • Do you have a young child under the age of six, or do you have a child with elevated lead-blood levels living in your home?
  • Do you live in one of these counties: Fresno, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Tulare, Sacramento, Sutter or Yuba?

If you answered “yes” to all of these questions please contact your LHCP provider for additional eligibility information and how to apply for services.

LHCP HIGHLIGHT

Star GraphicLEAD FACTS

  • Just a few particles of dust from lead-based paint are enough to poison a child.
  • Lead from deteriorating paint can be found in soil around the home and in older playgrounds.
  • Having children wash their hands helps protect them from lead poisoning, as they often put their hands or toys in their mouths.
