The Lead Hazard Control (LHC) Grant Program is designed to strategically advance efforts to increase lead-safe affordable housing while eliminating the possibility of childhood lead poisoning in the City of Cleveland.  The LHC program provides lead risk assessments, identifies lead–based paint and provides grants to control lead-based paint hazards. The program strives to use a single approach to address various housing, health, and safety needs for low- and very low-income families with children under the age of six.  These efforts will significantly improve the health of the community and quality of the housing stock.

Protecting Children
Lead is poisonous to a child’s body, and can harm the brain and cause learning difficulties and behavioral problems.  Many homes built before 1978 have paint containing lead. The city recommends that parents living in homes built before 1978 have their children tested.
