LEAD is a naturally occurring element that has been used in a wide variety of products including pipes and plumbing materials, gasoline, and paint.

Although lead-based paint has been banned for consumer use, homes and apartments built before 1978 may have peeling or chipping lead-based paint. Lead is particularly dangerous to young children. Children under six years old with high levels of lead in their bodies may suffer from brain damage, behavioral problems, hearing loss, and delayed growth.

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.
