Bridgeport Lead Free Families

Since 2004 Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust, Inc. has been the construction manager for the City of Bridgeport Lead Free Families Program. During our 10 year involvement, BNT has managed millions in funding to make 800 units scattered throughout the city, lead-safe. BNT’s role included developing protocols and procedures to implement the goals outlined in HUD’s work plan, conducting risk assessments, developing specifications, pre-qualifying lead abatement contractors, managing bidding, negotiating contracts, and monitoring construction.

Based on the program’s success and Bridgeport’s continued need for lead-hazard control, HUD awarded the City another $2.3 million in 2013 which is slated to continue until 2016. The new funds are helping make an additional 110 units lead-safe.

 

Lead Paint Removal

 

Every parent wants to protect their child from danger, but often the greatest threats to healthy development are invisible to the naked eye. That’s why getting your home tested for lead and other hazardous material is so essential.

If your family meets some basic eligibility requirements, BNT can finance the removal of lead paint from your home. We’ll help cover window replacements and repairs to doors and other exterior surfaces so that you can rest easy, knowing your child is living in a lead-safe home.

Each eligible property receives a lead based paint inspection and risk assessment. An abatement planner will then create a scope of work with specifications for the contractor to follow. Approved certified lead abatement contractors will bid on the project and a contractor will be selected to perform the lead abatement or remediation work. Upon completion, a final dust wipe test will provide the official “clearance” – an assurance that your home is now truly lead safe.
