Lead Abatement Program

The County of Summit partners with the Summit County Public Health District to administer the Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction Program. 

The program is designed to reduce lead based paint hazards in homes built prior to 1978 with children under the age of 6 residing in the home or visiting the home more than 60 hours a year.  Owner occupied housing and rental units are eligible for assistance throughout Summit County. 

To qualify applicants must meet the income guidelines, have current homeowners insurance and be current on their property taxes.  Rental units must be registered with the Summit County Fiscal Office and the community where the property is located, if applicable. 

Assistance is available through a 5 year, deferred, forgivable mortgage.  Landlords will be responsible for 25% of the contractor’s final bid.  Services may include: window replacement, siding, porch replacement/repair and door replacement/repair.
