The Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) administers a federally funded lead paint abatement program that has resulted in the abatement of lead paint from several hundred housing units in Malden.
The MRA is committed to making Malden “Lead Safe” and is providing the opportunity for local residents and employers to receive training in lead safety practices. Specifically, the MRA will contract with Institute for Environmental Education in Wilmington to provide free training in lead paint abatement. Depending upon the interest, courses could range from de-leader worker to lead–safe renovaor to contractor/supervisor. Initial, refresher and Spanish speaking courses will be available.
For more information about courses, dates and times, please contact the MRA’s Healthy Homes Office at 781-397-1940.
