Lead Hazard Mitigation Program

Mission

To prevent lead hazards and lead poisoning by ensuring that Rhode Island rental properties are lead-safe.

What we do

  • Provide technical assistance, planning, and education for lead hazard reduction throughout Rhode Island.
  • Focus our work on lead-based paint hazard reduction and improving the Rhode Island housing stock.
  • Educate the public about various lead hazard reduction programs that are available throughout Rhode Island.
  • Increase the number of rental properties with a Certificate of Lead Conformance.
  • Decrease the rates of lead poisoning in Rhode Island.
