The PACE Lead Program works with the Massachusetts Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) to ensure that families receive educational resources, as well as cleaning kits to help prevent lead exposure.
The Lead Program at PACE provides educational home visits to families whose children have been diagnosed with lead poisoning.
Our Community Health Workers offer referrals for WIC, Early Intervention, and community resources. They also provide support to homeowners who are seeking financial assistance to de-lead their homes. In addition, our staff is available to conduct in-service training for parent and community groups.
Massachusetts Lead Law
Since 1971, Massachusetts Lead Law requires the removal or covering of lead paint hazards in homes built before 1978 where any children under 6 live.
Lead paint hazards include loose lead paint, lead paint on windows and friction surfaces, and other surfaces accessible to children. Owners are responsible for complying with the law.
