About the Event

Event |



Come to the first information session for the Lead Paint Safe Somerville Program! Translation services will be provided by SomerViva. Learn from City staff about lead paint and the impacts of lead exposure. Learn how City programs can provide assistance to tenants and property owners in Somerville.  Doors at 6:30 pm, presentation at 7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. More information is available at

About the program: The City of Somerville received a $1.7 million grant to help create safe housing environments for Somerville families. If your home was built before 1978, you may be exposed to lead paint. Lead exposure can cause serious health issues, especially for children. Lead Paint Safe Somerville is a limited-time program that provides 0% interest forgivable loans for Somerville homes to control lead hazards. Our goal is to mitigate lead hazards in 90 Somerville housing units by 2021.
