What is Lead?
Lead is a naturally occurring element that has been used in a wide variety of products including plumbing materials, gasoline, and paint. When lead paint gets old or damaged, it creates lead dust and chips. 

Lead Paint is Dangerous!
Lead paint can cause health problems, especially to children under 6 years old. Exposure to lead paint can cause delayed growth, behavioral problems, poor hearing, headaches, and brain damage.

Creating Safe and Healthy Homes

​Lead Safe Phoenix operates through a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Our no cost program aims to reduce childhood lead poisoning by creating lead-safe housing. This program also helps residents address minor health hazards in their homes.
