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 Wayne Martineau or Kevin Nestor at 781-324-5720.
The MRA is seeking qualified construction contractor firms to provide lead paint abatement services in conjunction with its Federally-funded Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant and Housing Rehabilitation Program.
Construction contractor firms must have proper licenses, construction expertise, a thorough knowledge and understanding of state and local building codes, an understanding of containment procedures and lead inspection/risk assessment reports, adequate liability and workers compensation insurance coverage and must be registered on SAM.gov. SAM (System for Award Management) registration is required to work with government agencies that receive Federal grants. The MRA can assist interested contractors with the registration process. For more information regarding qualifications, please call 781-397-1940 or visit the MRA Healthy Homes Office, 176 Pearl Street, Malden.
The MRA specializes in Lead and Rehab projects servicing low income residents of the City of Malden. The MRA will work with qualified contractors to provide personalized, individual service through final completion of the project.
All grantees, subrecipients and contractors awarded contracts funded with Federal dollars or receiving CDBG funds must register with the Federal debarment clearinghouse System for Award Management (SAM.gov) and must provide proof of active status on SAM.gov in order to comply with Federal regulations. Registration is free and it takes approximately one month to become active with a valid DUNS number. If a grantee, subrecipient or contractor does not register, they will not be considered qualified and, therefore, will not be able to contract with the City of Malden or MRA for activities funded with CDBG and/or other Federal dollars.
