You can’t always be in control of what your children chew.

Was your home built before 1978? 

If so, you may have lead paint in your home, which can be harmful for young children and pregnant women. Our LeadSafe Homes program offers forgivable loans to reduce the hazards of lead in the home.

RIHousing’s LeadSafe Homes Program

  • Provides forgivable loans to property owners to cover the costs associated with addressing lead-paint problems and other unsafe conditions

  • Property owners are subject to no out-of-pocket expenses or monthly payments

  • After a set number of years, the loan is completely forgiven, meaning there is no cost to participate in this program.

  • In most instances, assistance is free

  • Homes build before 1978 (the year that lead was banned from paint) are eligible for the assistance

Whether you own your home or rent, 

we can work with you to make your home safe.
