Lead Hazard Control Program

The Environmental Public Health division of Harris County Public Health (HCPH) is committed to making Harris County residences built before 1978 lead safe.

The Lead Hazard Control Program uses funds from the American Rescue Plan (ARPA) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to:

  • Educate health care professionals and parents about the hazards of lead poisoning and the methods for reducing the sources of lead
  • Identify and test residences with lead-based paint hazards
  • Provide lead hazard reduction and relocation for residents (when necessary)

Please note that the Lead Hazard Control Program specifically works to abate the lead found in homes built before 1978. If your home was built after 1978 you are unlikely to qualify.

When funding is available, Harris County Lead program provides grants to assist low-income homeowners with addressing unsafe lead paint conditions that pose a potential health hazard to young children. The program is designed to assist owners of single and multi-family dwellings and rental properties.

Some of the services we offer for those who qualify:

  • Free lead inspections at your home
  • Free remediation of lead hazards at your home or rental property

Below is a map of homes in Harris County that have been made lead safe.
