CLARKSVILLE, TN - Residents affected by lead in their homes could be eligible for assistance through the lead safe housing program, offered by Clarksville Neighborhood and Community Services.
Homes built in Clarksville before 1978 may still contain lead paint. Lead exposure can be dangerous to residents, especially young children. CNCS’s new program hopes to prevent lead poisoning in kids.
The program offers a 3-year forgivable grant that covers lead paint inspections and up to $20,000 of lead paint abatement. Clarksville homeowners can apply today to see if they're eligible for assistance through the Lead Safe Housing Program today. To learn more about how the program works and how to apply, contact Michelle Klein at (931) 648-6133 or complete the Lead Safe Assessment.
