Home Maintenance & Repairs
Allegheny County Lead Safe Homes Program (link)
The Allegheny Lead Safe Homes program offers qualifying homeowners and renters in Allegheny County with free lead-paint testing throughout their homes and hires a certified lead abatement contractor to repair any lead hazards found up to $12,000. Examples of work include repair and repainting of chipping and peeling lead-painted surfaces, window and door repair or replacement, and enclosing exterior trim and components. Homeowner/renter eligibility requirements and further information can be found on the County’s website, which is linked above.
