POCATELLO – Thanks to over a million dollars in funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), low to moderate income Pocatellans are now eligible to have lead-based paint hazards in their home removed for free.
Recently, the City of Pocatello’s Planning and Development Services Department received a $1.5 million Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant from HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes. The City has used the funding to start up its Lead Safe and Healthy Homes (LSHH) effort. Through LSHH, the City will provide lead-based paint hazard control via licensed and certified contractors at no cost to homeowners and renters.
