What is the Lead Hazard Control Program?
ECIA has been awarded federal funding to reduce and/or eliminate lead-based paint hazards in eligible areas (Delaware, Dubuque County [Excluding the City of Dubuque], City of Clinton, and City of Maquoketa).
- Was your property built before 1978?
- Do you fall within the HUD income guidelines (below)?
- Do you have any children visiting or living with you age 5 and under?
How Does the Lead Program Work?
- After completing and submitting a pre-application, here are the steps in the process:
- After you apply for the program, ECIA staff will confirm your eligibility.
- Once deemed eligible, inspectors will conduct a surface-by-surface inspection at your home to determine any lead hazards.
- After the inspection, the lead inspection report and proposed scope of work will be submitted to you for review.
- If everything is acceptable, a walk through with a lead abatement contractor will be scheduled in order to secure a bid.
- After a bid is secured, materials will be ordered and work can begin.*
- Once work is completed, your family will return to a lead-safe home.
*Relocation may be necessary depending on the scope of work and is covered by the program.
