Cleveland has a lead poisoning crisis. Lead exposure, at even low levels, can damage a developing brain and cause lifelong, often irreversible, problems affecting education, behavior, and health. There is no safe blood level of lead, yet over 25% of Cleveland children test positive for lead prior to kindergarten. The Lead Safe Home Fund (Fund) will enable borrowers to make lead interim control improvements for rental and owner-occupied properties.
