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.
The Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) provide funding to local governments to develop cost-effective ways to reduce lead-based paint hazards. In addition, the office enforces HUD's lead-based paint regulations, provides public outreach and technical assistance, and conducts technical studies to help protect children and their families from health and safety hazards in the home.
If you are interested in learning more about the WLAP, please contact Jim Brooks, Healthy Homes Program Manager.
