If you are living in a house or apartment that was built before 1978, you or even your landlord, may be eligible for grant money and other assistance to make sure that you do not suffer the effects of lead poisoning from lead-based paint. Chips or dust from this type of paint can be highly dangerous to humans, especially your grandchildren. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development operates the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program providing grants to state and local departments of housing to help homeowners and apartment owners eliminate the problems associated with lead paint. Contact your state or local department of housing to see if you qualify for free inspections, free guides or even free lead paint removal. To obtain information about the grant program, contact: Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, 451 7th Street S.W.,Washington, DC 20410; 202-708-1112; www.hud.gov/offices/lead/lhc/index.cfm
