The City of Springfield Office of Housing is accepting applications for a new Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction program. Lead abatement funding is available city-wide, for homes with qualifying households (earning up to 80% of area median income, with at least one child under the age of 6 years).
- Owner-occupants residing in a single family home may be eligible for up to $20,000 in grant funding.
- Owner-occupants residing in one unit of a 2-4 family dwelling may be eligible for a $20,000, deferred payment, 0% interest loan.
- Investment owners may be eligible for a $13,000, deferred payment, 0% loan.
Contracted lead abatement work will be performed by licensed lead abatement contractors and should result in a Letter of Full Deleading Compliance (LOFDC) for the eligible units.
