Ninety percent of the homes in Somerville were built before lead paint was banned. If you think your home has lead paint, take advantage of the limited-time City of Somerville program designed to make your home lead-safe at no-cost.
Lead Safe Somerville is a federally-funded program provided by the City. All expenses associated with making the unit lead-safe are covered by a forgivable loan. Property owners and tenants may be eligible. Income limits apply.
For each unit deleaded, property owners are entitled to a $1,500 state tax credit.
