Lead Free Homes

Lead poisoning can affect anyone, but it is especially dangerous for young children and pregnant women. This free program is designed to remove lead paint hazards from the inside and outside of your home, creating a healthier living environment for you and your children. If you are a homeowner, landlord or renter, you can answer a few pre-qualifying questions to see if you are eligible and if we are in your area.

The Lead Free Homes program will be only available in certain areas of the City of Pasadena and in surrounding areas for a limited time, so it is important to check if the program is currently in your area. If the program is not currently in your area, we may be in your area at a later time. If you are interested, we encourage you to find out if you are eligible as soon as possible.

How do I know if I am eligible?

  • Was your home built before 1951?
  • Is the paint in your home chipped or cracked?
  • Are there children under 6 years old or pregnant women living in or visiting your home?

If you answered yes to these questions, you might be eligible. To see if you qualify or your home is in an area we are servicing, click the button below and enter your address and zip code.

If you are eligible, use the button below to fill out and submit your application online.
