Lead Hazard Control Program (LHCP) addresses lead hazards in privately-owned housing constructed before 1978, using a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Services are free; however participants must meet eligibility requirements.
The program aims to prevent childhood lead poisoning by creating lead-safe housing and provides comprehensive lead services and childhood poisoning prevention.
Program partners are the Arizona Department of Health Services and Maricopa County Department of Public Health Services.

Lead Safe Rental Registry List
The Lead Safe Rental Registry List was developed to help agencies and families with young children to locate housing that has been made “lead safe” by program activities. Properties listed in the Registry List were determined to be “lead safe” following participation in the program or through re-certification testing for the registry.
The city of Phoenix has no control over and makes no warranties regarding activities that the landlord, management, or residents may have taken since the testing which might have disturbed lead-based paint, and/or normal deterioration that might have contaminated the unit since the test date. Contact us for more information about the program.
