Welcome to New London’s Lead Hazard Reduction Program

New London’s Lead Hazard Reduction Program is offering financial aid to homeowners for residential buildings. The program is designed to correct the serious risk of health issues that can be dangerous to infants, children and pregnant women. The City is now accepting applications from property owners for aid to improve housing for tenants and owners. Up to $10,000 per unit may be awarded. Housing units approved for assistance must have occupants who meet income requirements, rents that remain at fair market levels for five (5) years; owners must give preference to families with children when renting. Each residential unit, including the owner-occupied unit, must complete an Income Verification Form. The application will not be considered complete until all units have submitted the Income Verification Form.

Each property will be given a score based on the criteria above and ranked in comparison to other applications on the waiting list. There is limited funding so it is important to complete the application quickly and accurately.

If your application is chosen, you will be asked to complete a Letter of Intent showing your commitment to continue with the inspection phase. Additional forms will be required of you and your tenants at that point in the process. Only then will formal inspections for lead hazards and code problems be scheduled.

Send applications to Judi Cox, Loan Specialist at 181 State Street, New London, CT 06320.

If you need information or assistance, please contact Judi Cox at (860) 447-5243.
