A family may qualify for the grant program if:

  1. The home is located within suburban Cook County,
  2. Their income is below the program limit, and
  3. There are lead paint hazards in the home.

CCDPH will work with families to identify any healthy homes and lead paint hazards in their home and contract with a licensed contractor to fix the hazards at no cost to you. Lead hazard repairs typically include: painting, replacing windows, or other home repair work to remove or contain lead paint or address housing hazards.

Household income can not exceed the amount in the chart below for your family size.
