Lead Hazard Reduction Program

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) will provide up to $4.75 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery funds for competitive grants to eligible non-profit organizations and units of local and county government for lead assessment and remediation in Sandy-impacted homes, which are potentially at greater risk of lead threats due to flooding that has caused lead-based paint to flake. This program complements an effort to test young children, pregnant mothers and Sandy recovery workers for blood lead levels being administered by the New Jersey Department of Health with Social Services Block Grant funding from the federal government.
