Resources for Lead-Safe Housing

Affordable, safe and healthy environments for children are critical for their health and well-being and to protect their future. Older buildings (pre-1978) where lead hazards have been eliminated by using lead-safe work practices may be considered lead-safe environments. Finding such environments means knowing what and where to look for lead hazards. Creating lead-safe housing requires a commitment as a community to develop policy and other strategies to protect children from lead exposure.
