Bonding and Grants for Addressing Lead Hazards

League President Colleen Mahr, Mayor of Fanwood commented on the addressing of Lead Hazards saying, “Recent reports of the need to upgrade water infrastructure to address lead are unfortunately not unique. The League has, for years, worked to help municipalities find new means, and create new resources to address this vital issue. Many mayors have gone to extraordinary lengths to address lead in their communities, and we want all mayors to know the League stands ready to be a resource on this and all municipal issues.”

Here are just some of the resources on this issue available from the League:

PL 2018 Chp 114 permits special assessments and issuing bonds to replace lead water lines. For more details please see our August 31, 2018, letter regarding that and the blog post covering the issue.

Since lead hazards take many forms, see our Grant News and Information page for grant information from the HUD Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes.

More background and resources are available through the League website Search function or by calling the League office, 609-695-3481.
