Lead services for health and home
There is no safe level of lead in the blood. If you believe your child was exposed to lead, contact your local health department or primary care provider to discuss getting a blood lead test.
If your child has an elevated blood lead level, please contact a state, local, or national program to apply for lead services. Lead services are available to help:
- Find and fix lead hazards
- Identify lead in drinking water hazards
- Lower your child's elevated blood lead level
Across the State of Michigan there are numerous lead-related programs and services. To see what program exists in your county, please contact one of the agencies below. If you do not see your county listed, contact your local health department to ask about other available services.

The Lead Safe Home Program helps families identify and remove lead hazards from homes. To qualify for the program, eligibility is based on submitting a complete application, Medicaid status, and home location. To apply for the program, submit a Lead Safe Home Program application.
The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) provides health services for children with elevated blood lead levels and those at risk of lead poisoning. Local health departments are funded through this program to provide nursing case management. Nurses are trained to visit with parents/guardians at their home to discuss ways to help lower their child's elevated blood lead level. Local health departments also provide blood lead testing, presentations, and training about lead and lead poisoning prevention. Please call your local health department to determine which services are available.
The Lead Prevention Fund is available to homeowners and income property owners who do not qualify for free MDHHS lead abatement services. Learn about the program by visiting MichiganSaves.org/LeadFund. All residents are encouraged to complete the MDHHS free lead abatement services application prior to seeking assistance through the Lead Prevention Fund. Apply for free services by completing the Lead Services application.
