Lead Safe Phoenix banner

LEAD is a naturally occurring element that has been used in a wide variety of products including pipes and plumbing materials, gasoline, and paint. While lead has beneficial uses, it can be toxic to humans – especially young children.  

Although lead-based paint is no longer used, older homes (built before 1978) may have old peeling or chipping lead-based paint. Through a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Phoenix operates Lead Safe Phoenix. This no cost program aims to reduce childhood lead poisoning by creating lead-safe housing.
