How to Become a Contractor Approved to Work on ACHHD Lead Hazard Repair Projects

The Alameda County Healthy Homes Department provides technical and financial assistance to property owners to reduce the hazards caused by exposure to lead-based paint and lead contaminated soil and dust through its Lead Hazard Repair program.

The nature of these lead-hazard reduction jobs is generally paint film stabilization (repainting using lead-safe work methods), minor carpentry which might include repairing or replacing doors, trim, windows, siding, or stairs, cleaning and minor landscaping. The majority of the work is done on 1 to 4 unit properties. Learn more about the Alameda County Healthy Homes Department Lead Hazard Repair services. Please let your clients know about our services!
