Lead Paint Hazard Control Program

The Lead Paint Hazard Control Program has recently been started by the Community Action Agency of Delaware County (CAADC) to help families with children under the age of five who are at risk from dangerous lead paint in their homes. If you have, or think you might have, lead-based paint in your home, the CAADC can spend up to $10,000 to fix the hazard.

To qualify for CAADC action, you must be a homeowner (not a renter) living in Delaware County but not Upper Darby, Chester, or Haverford. Income guidelines apply - however new income limits were recently released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and are slightly higher than they were last year.

More in depth information regarding the program can be found below in a brochure issued by the Community Action Agency of Delaware County.

Completed pre-surveys and applications can be sent to Deborah Brodeur with the CAADC at 201 W. Front St. Media, PA, 19063.
