Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant Program

This federally funded grant program was created to protect children ages 5 and younger and expectant mothers from the harmful toxins of lead-based paint. Lead-based paint is found in homes built before 1978 and is most harmful to children ages 5 and younger.

Chesterfield County wants to ensure that its residents are aware of this grant program and the benefits for you and your household. We want to serve our residents and help create a healthier life for their families. View the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant Program video English version or Spanish version for more information.
