Lead paint wall.jpgLead 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 Program Eligibility Requirements

Program helps homeowners, landlords and tenants in targeted areas control hazards from lead in paint, soil and dust. Residents must have a low-to-moderate income level to qualify for assistance, the inhabitants must include a child under age six, and the residence must have been constructed before 1978. The program is also a source of information about prevention of childhood lead poisoning.

Eligibility requirements for enrollment of a property:

  • pre-1978 construction
  • low-income residents
  • child resident under the age of six years or pregnant resident
  • geographic location in a targeted area of the city. The geographic requirement is waived in the case of a resident child with an elevated blood lead level.

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.

The Healthy Homes Program addresses multiple childhood diseases and injuries in the home. The Initiative takes a comprehensive approach to these activities by focusing on housing-related hazards in a coordinated fashion, rather than addressing a single hazard at a time.
