MassHousing - Get The Lead Out Program

The City of Haverhill serves as a Local Rehabilitation Agency for MassHousing’s Get the Lead Out Program.  The Get the Lead Program has been designed to provide low-cost financing to owners of 1-4 family properties to remove lead paint from their homes and reduce the possibilities of lead poisoning in children.

The funding for this program is provided by a state appropriation and participating agencies include; Department of Housing, Department of Public Health, and the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. MassHousing is the administrative agency.

Under this program 100% of the financing available must be used for the purpose of lead paint abatement activities.  Deleading that has been started prior to the loan closing is ineligible.  MassHousing cannot reimburse owners or contractors for work started prior to completion of the loan closing.

Please contact the Community Development Department if you are interested in applying to this program.
