Due to COVID-19 our staff is working remotely and can be reached by email or phone.

The PACE Lead Program works with the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program to ensure that children and families receive medical and environmental services, as well as preventing further cases of lead poisoning. The Lead Program at PACE provides educational home visits to families of lead poisoned children. 

In addition, our staff conducts in-service trainings to parent and community groups. Lead also provides general information about lead poisoning, prevention and resources to families and homeowners.

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 with complying with the law.
