Some older Jackson homes with lead-based paint could get a little safer, especially for children, under a new program City leaders announced Monday.
#Residents with houses built before 1978 can have their homes tested for lead-based paint, which is known to cause serious health issues, and remedied if necessary under the new Lead Safe Housing Program. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development donated $1.3 million to fund the program.
