Lead Safe Jackson Housing Program
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the City of Jackson's Office of Housing and Community Development over $1.3 million to identify and mitigate lead-based paint and other housing and health hazards in low-income homes at significant risk for exposure. The Lead Safe Jackson Housing Program enables eligible low-and-moderate income homeowners in the City of Jackson to make repairs and improvements to their homes to provide a lead safe home environment for young children.

The city will address and remediate lead-based paint and other housing related health hazards in a total of 77 eligible low-income units in the county. The City along with its partner, Green and Healthy Homes Initiative, will work with the Mississippi Center for Justice, the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation, Excel By 5 Mississippi and Mississippi Housing Partnership.

Program applications are available for pickup at the following location:

Green & Healthy Homes Initiative Jackson

Jackson, MS 39202
