Lead Hazard Control & Healthy Homes Program


The City of Dubuque has made 1,300 units lead-safe over the course of five grants starting in 1997. Download the list of properties made lead-safe, which is sorted by house number. If a unit was previously made lead-safe, it is not eligible for additional grant funding.

  • Have a child under the age of six that lives in the home or visits the home on a frequent basis. Alternatively, a pregnant woman qualifies.
