GRBJ Highlights Efforts of Get the Lead Out!

A recent article in the Grand Rapids Business Journal reports how HUD's investment in fixing houses for lead was a lifeline for contractors during the recent downturned economy. When the housing market crashed and remodeling came to a screeching halt, the federal investment kept some contractors very busy. 

According to the report, "In the last decade, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has funded 65 percent of lead remediation in the city of Grand Rapids, with a combined total of $23 million (invested) from HUD and matching funds."
