About HHLR


The City of Dallas Healthy Homes Lead Reduction Program (HHLR) provides lead hazard reduction home repair services to create a lead-safe environment for the children of Dallas. HHLR also includes Healthy Homes Supplemental Funding for the identification and remediation of housing related health and safety hazards in homes. Studies have suggested that issues like asthma and unintentional injuries are the cause of sub-standard housing conditions that can easily be prevented.


The free program protects children from lead when they live or spend extended periods of time in a home with deteriorated lead-based paint. Participation in the program will require a paint inspection/risk assessment of the property to determine presence of lead-based paint hazards. For qualifying households, the program will identify, remove, or stabilize lead-based paint hazards at no cost to the homeowner.

  • Single-family home built before 1978 within Dallas City Limits
  • Owner-occupied and income eligible
  • Child/children under the age of 6 resides in the home or stays for extend periods of time
