Lead Paint Poisoning Prevention Program

Upon request of the tenant, the Lead Poisoning Prevention Program conducts environmental assessments to identify possible lead paint hazards and violations where a child under the age of six resides.

Properties that are cited for lead paint violations are provided with information from the Division of Neighborhood and Housing Development regarding the Worcester Lead Abatement Program (WLAP).

Worcester Lead Abatement Program

The Worcester Lead Abatement Program (WLAP) is a federally funded grant program that is designed to assist property owners with the cost of lead paint abatement in eligible properties. Both owner-occupied and investor-owned properties may qualify. Income and rental restrictions may apply. Massachusetts Law requires the abatement of lead paint hazards wherever children under six-years old reside.

Lead & Healthy Homes Resources

The City of Worcester Housing & Neighborhood Development office has compiled a large number of resources on preventing lead poisoning to aid and support deleading, healthcare providers, homeowners, parents, property landlords / property managers, real estate agents and tenants.
