Westmoreland County is getting ready to launch The Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Program and needs help spreading the word!  The Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes Program is a Federally Funded Grant Program, which focuses on homes built prior to 1978 since they are more likely to contain lead-based paint. Additional requirements include households must meet maximums income limits per household size as listed on the flyer below. *Eligible households must also have a child(ren) 6 years or under (that includes a pregnant woman) that either live in the home, or visits the residence at least 3 hours, 2 times per week, for 60 hours or more per year. For instance, if a grandparent cares for a grandchild who is under the age of 6 years in their home at a minimum of 3 hours/twice a week, their home was built prior to 1978, and the grandparents meet the income requirements for household, they could qualify. This program covers lead-based paint abatement and possibly other hazards that are related to lead poisoning in the home e.g., lead in windows, siding, and railings, and/or contributing factors that could lead to lead poisoning such as a leaky roof (water causing paint that contains lead to chip).

This program focuses on young children because, they are the most impacted by the effects of lead poisoning but, it also effects adults as well. An informative flyer from the Environmental Protection Agency on lead and its effects can be found at: Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home

Please click on the links below for more information from Westmoreland County.  There is also a flyer for possible employment as a lead-abatement contractor.  If you have any questions, please contact the program coordinator at the Westmoreland County office of Community Development.

News:  The News section of the website is a collection of all the information that’s been posted in the past to the borough website on the Welcome Page and many other pages.  It ends up being a great historical archive of a lot of activities in the community.  The section was reorganized the beginning of 2021 by year.  This way the pages are smaller and load faster.  The main News page has a featured news event to get more visibility for something important going on in the community.  Please enjoy looking through all the information in the section.  Thank you.

Events Calendar: A note on the calendar on the right side of the screen.  It shows the next 5 upcoming events.  At the bottom if you click on “View All Events” it will bring up a calendar showing the entire month.  You can then scroll through the months or click on individual items to learn more about various events.
