Assistance is now available to reduce or eliminate lead hazards in housing for qualified applicants through the City of Lancaster’s Lead Hazard Control Program. Eligible applicants will receive financial assistance to reduce lead hazards found in the home through a Risk Assessment. Repairs may include replacement or repair of items such as doors, windows, and floors

The work to be performed is determined by the results of the Risk Assessment. Licensed and certified contractors will use interim controls and abatement methods when performing the work. The program does not make the property lead-free, instead the property will be considered lead-safe.

A lien will be placed on the property to ensure the property remains lead-safe, and will be removed after five (5) years. If hazard(s) are found within 5 years, the owner must agree to remediate the hazard(s) found and they must try to rent the unit to a family that has a child under the age of six.

Below is a list of properties identified by the City of Lancaster as “LeadSafe”. This means the property has received a full clearance of immediate lead hazards. Leadsafe should not be confused with lead-free as there may still be lead in the home that does not pose an immediate health risk to its occupants.
