Michigan Saves Lead Poisoning Prevention Fund

Michigan Saves created the Lead Poisoning Prevention Fund (Lead Fund) to fill a critical gap for homeowners and income property owners who don’t qualify for free Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) lead abatement services. We’re working to make sure everyone—no exceptions—has peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their homes.
