Deleading program a success

LAWRENCE - A total of 261 housing units in the city have been made lead free thanks to a $3.1 million grant the Lawrence Lead Abatement Program received three years ago from HUD’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard.

“This is great news for our residents,” said Mayor Daniel Rivera. “Children and their families in Lawrence deserve safe, quality housing and I thank HUD for this grant that has made Lawrence a better place to live.”

Residents with children that showed elevated blood levels were given the highest priority for participation. The program has affected 961 people in these units, 266 are children under the age of 6. The program worked very closely with the Massachusetts Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program and reported all lead safe units created, thus adding them to the state lead-safe housing registry.
