Lead Based Paint Hazard Control Program
The Lead Hazard Reduction Program (LHR) is a community effort – administered by the City of Tucson with local agency partners. The program targets lead-based paint and its physiological effects in children under the age of six (6) years. The LHCP is designed to locate and address owner-occupied residential properties found to contain lead hazards.
Once such properties are identified, any and all children under the age of six (6) years who reside in or regularly visit these hazardous properties are referred to El Rio Health Center for FREE blood testing. Families may also use their own physicians and/or clinics. Eligible children determined to have ‘elevated blood levels’ (EBL) will be referred to local health providers for any available treatment and follow-up care.
Note: The Lead Hazard Control Program is NOT designed as a comprehensive, housing rehabilitation program, but rather one specifically developed to address the issue of lead hazards. The amount of housing rehabilitation provided, if any, will be strictly limited to those hazardous areas, as confirmed by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-certified staff. Please see the Lead Hazard Control Program Fact Sheet(PDF, 410KB) for important details and information.
