At this event we will share the various resources and grants available to delead your apartments and make other healthy home improvements. These programs are state and federally funded, and are administered locally by Massachusetts municipalities. We will have experts from different cities share how the programs work. This presentation will be relevant for owners in many towns and cities. The basic program requirements are more or less the same in each participating municipality. You will learn the names of the programs to follow up locally to see what is available for your properties.
We will share opportunities to address:
- Lead poisoning, which is up during the pandemic
- Leaky pipes, which are a source of mold and other pathogens
- Older electrical
- Missing handrails, and
- Asthma triggers including carpets and rodents.
This presentation will not be a deleader training course. We will be reviewing the funding mechanisms available to help you hire a licensed deleader or make other healthy home improvements.
Part of this presentation will be given by Nigel Greaves, Senior Program Manager, Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction & Healthy Homes Programs, Office of Housing, City of Springfield. Nigel has been with the City in this capacity since 2018, after earning a master’s degree in business and building his career in public service. Nigel’s interest and experience in real estate and home rehabilitation has grown tremendously since when he purchased his first home in Springfield just over four years ago.
Part of this presentation will be given by Kevin Nestor, Rehab Specialist at the Malden Redevelopment Authority.
Part of this presentation will be given by Jim Brooks, Healthy Homes Program Manager from the Executive Office of Economic Development, Housing Development Division, City of Worcester.
