LRAP - Lead Remediation and Abatement Program

LRAP Banner

Lead-based paint in buildings poses serious health risks, particularly for children who may ingest paint chips or inhale lead-contaminated dust. The New Jersey Lead Remediation and Abatement program (LRAP), funded by a $180 million federal grant, aims to address this issue by supporting the removal of lead-based hazards from low- to moderate-income households.

Tenants & Homeowners

Households with incomes at or below 80% of the area median income for the County in which the municipality is situated, residing in one to four family residential properties constructed prior to 1978, are eligible.

There are dangers to having lead-based paint in buildings. Lead is toxic, especially to children and can potentially cause permanent health issues.

Untreated, lead-based paint may lead to complications such as:

  • Irreversible brain damage
  • Kidney/liver damage
  • Infertility
  • Nervous system damage
  • Seizures
