What is LHCP?

Funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Lead-Based Hazard Control Program's (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. Services include evaluation and remediation of lead-based paint in residential homes. 

CSD most recently offered LHCP lead hazard control services through local partners in seven counties in California. With the conclusion of CSD's most recent LHCP grant term, the department is not currently administering lead hazard control services in California. Other programs are available to California residents, and counties and cities are able to contract directly with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide lead remediation.
