Manchester will be receiving $5.4 million from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for lead abatement. The funds consist of $4,668,215 from the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD) grant program for lead-based paint remediation and an additional $700,000 in supplemental funding from HUD’s Healthy Homes Program for addressing additional housing hazards such as mold, radon, and carbon monoxide found during lead remediation.
“Manchester has a relatively old housing stock, and lead paint hazards pose a risk to families with young children,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “This $5.4M for lead abatement will have a significant impact on increasing the health of our community and making homes safer and more livable for generations to come.”
