SEYMOUR — Residents in the six towns served by the Naugatuck Valley Health District will soon be able to get help with handling lead and other household hazards.
The agency was awarded $2.48 million by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“Our goal is to improve 180 housing units, either single-family or multifamily,” said Cindy Vitone, outreach and education coordinator for NVHD.
Of that, $2.3 million is for lead abatement and $180,000 is for the district’s Healthy Homes Initiative, which targets environmental hazards that hurt children, Vitone said.
