Lead Removal

NeighborWorks® Southern Mass offers lead paint services through MassHousing’s “Get the Lead Out” program. Low-to-no interest loans are available.

“Get the Lead Out” is a statewide program that has been designed to provide low-to-no cost financing to owners of 1-4 family properties to remove lead paint from their homes and reduce the risks of lead poisoning.

Eligible applicants include owner occupied units, investor-owners (who rent their property to income-eligible tenants), and nonprofit organizations.

Loan amounts range from $30,000 – $45,000 and vary by town.
