Lead Safe Washington Program (LSW)

Lead Safe Washington’s (LSW) primary goal is to create lead safe affordable housing for low-to-moderate income families with children under the age of six. LSW is designed to maximize the control and reduction of lead hazards in privately owned properties through a comprehensive plan of lead hazard control and reduction, using significant funding from HUD’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control (OHHLHC) and the District’s leveraged local Housing Production Trust Funds monies.

The LSW program will test eligible properties, at no charge, for lead-based paint hazards.  If an eligible property is identified as having lead-based paint hazards, DHCD, will provide grant funding to property owners for the removal of lead-based paint hazards.
