Westchester Receives $4.1 Million Federal Grant to Address Lead Hazards in Housing Units

A federal grant of $4.1 million will go to the County of Westchester to address lead hazards in 240 housing units for low- and very low-income families with children, and to perform healthy homes assessments.

“Every person, regardless of their economic circumstance, deserves to live in a safe and healthy environment, said Congresswoman Nita Lowey. “With this federal funding, Westchester can improve the quality of life for families with children by tackling dangerous, potentially life-threatening lead hazards and conducting healthy homes assessments in hundreds of local housing units.”
