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-based 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.
