The City of Greenville has a new program that pays to test and remove or encapsulate lead paint. If your house was built prior to 1978, there's a good chance it has lead paint. If you have children under the age of 6 who reside or spend a lot of time in your home, they could be in danger!

For more information and to see if you're eligible to receive assistance, please contact Sylvia Brown at (252) 329-4509 or sbrown@greenvillenc.gov
