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 home lead services from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). We’re working to make sure everyone—no exceptions—has peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their homes.
We are pleased to offer a 50/50 cost-share incentive for participants in our Lead Fund program. This means Michigan Saves will cover 50 percent of the cost of your lead abatement project. See additional details about this incentive below.
