RVA Lead Paint Hazard Control Program

Lead paint and dust in older homes is a dangerous health hazard. Young children and pregnant women are most at risk.

Even low blood-lead levels can cause permanent damage to the brain and nervous system, affecting growth, learning, behavior, and worse.

Whether you rent or own, if you’re pregnant or children under age six live in or visit your home, you may qualify for free home repairs to remove lead paint hazards as well as repairs to improve home safety.

Opioid Crisis

Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine, and many others.

Every day, more than 115 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relieversheroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.
