Do you have a pre-1978 home in Berkely, Alameda, Emeryville or Oakland? Are there any children under 6, or a pregnant woman, living in the home? Or do children under 6 regularly visit? Is the household low-income? If so, you may qualify for up to $4,000 in grants for lead hazard and other safety repairs in the home, from the Alameda County Healthy Homes Department.
Rental and owner-occupied homes are eligible. Free consultations are also available. To find out more and to apply, go to www.achhd.org or call 510-567-8280.
Lead poisoning, asthma triggers and safety issues in the home are a serious threat to our children’s health. The Alameda County Healthy Homes Department has services to assist low-income residents and property owners in making their homes safer for young children. Grants and technical assistance are available to reduce lead hazards, and other health and safety issues in the home, as well as free consultation services.
