Lead-Based Paint Program

Program Overview

We partner with the City of Tucson Housing and Community Development Departments’ Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program by pre-qualifying candidates. Over a three-year period, the City of Tucson and their partners (e.g. SERI) will use $2,9000,000 of HUD funding to directly assist an estimated 180 vulnerable households. You will receive resources on the dangers of lead, have the option to get your child tested for lead poisoning through our partner, El Rio Community Health, and receive free home repairs if lead is found in your home.

A child’s exposure to lead can be from paint, soil, drinking water, consumer products, foods, cosmetics, medicines, jobs, hobbies, and more. Receive details on the sources of lead.

When was the last time you took your child to get tested for lead poisoning? Your child may not show any noticeable symptoms of lead poisoning but once they are exposed to lead it cannot be reversed. Lead can cause damages to your child’s brain and nervous system, learning disabilities (e.g. lower IQ and attention span), seizures, and even death.
