Lead poisoning is a public health concern of the City of Harrisburg. Concerned with the health impact lead poisoning has on pregnant women and children under six years of age, the City applied and received funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help reduce the hazards of lead poisoning in our pre-1978 city homes.
Under this Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grant (LHRD), the City’s Department of Bureau of Housing and Development will provide lead reduction interim controls and abatements within the City limits. The City is seeking PENNSYLVANIA Lead Certified Firms to provide these services starting April 2018 and continuing through the end of the grant, December 2018. All participating contractors must operate in compliance with all EPA, HUD, State, and City lead hazard reduction regulations, laws and standards of compliance.
