Get The Lead Out!  County Program Helps Homeowners

Do you live in an older home with children under 6?  If so, your exterior and interior walls may be covered with lead-based paint and a potential hazard to these youngsters.

Erie County has funds available for qualified homeowners to remove and replace lead-based paints.  These funds can be used on both owner- and renter-occupied properties. 

Young children can be harmed permanently by sustained exposure by breathing lead dust and/or eating chips of paint. 

For more information about Erie County’s Lead-Based Paint Hazard Program and how to qualify for a new paint job, call 419-627-7792.

Hurry!  Call for an application today.
