Turn to 10: Rhode Island cities receive grants to address lead paint
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) —
The cities of Pawtucket and Providence are receiving federal grants to identify and address lead-based paint hazards in public housing.
U.S. Sen. Jack Reed said Monday that the Pawtucket Housing Authority will receive $1 million and that the Providence Housing Authority will receive about $975,000 to perform risk assessments and remove or control lead-contaminated dust and soil at public housing units.
The grants come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
