The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has awarded $7 million in grants to curb and control lead hazard in low-income households.
The funding comes from Michigan’s Children’s Health Insurance Program. The City of Detroit was awarded more than $1 million. Households must have at least one Medicaid-enrolled resident to be qualified.
Cities, municipalities or communities who received the grant have until September 2023 to complete initiatives such as lead inspection, removal of lead-based paint and lead-dust hazards in homes, or temporarily relocating residents during abatement services.
