How the Program Works
Salt Lake County administers grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to qualifying homeowners, renters, and landlords to make homes lead safe for children. All services are free.
The focus of the program is to remediate lead hazards in homes built before 1978, where children under the age of six reside or visit frequently.
NOTE: The Salt Lake County Health Department recommends all children under the age of six be tested for lead exposure. Salt Lake County Lead Safe Housing Program provides testing for children under the age of six who live in qualifying properties. Usually, a “finger poke” is all that is needed to initially test for lead poisoning.
