Housing Rehabilitation Program
The City of Plano is committed to creating livable and sustainable community through vital neighborhoods and exciting urban centers. We strive to maintain and enhance the quality of single and multi-family homes both in appearance and through renovation.
The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Lead Based Paint Information
On September 15, 2000 the federal "Lead Safe Housing Rule" took effect. The requirements in this rule apply to all housing built before 1978, the year lead-based paint was banned for consumer use in the United States. The purpose of this rule is to protect young children from lead-based paint hazards in housing that is financially assisted by the federal government or being sold by the government.
To comply with the rule, each pre-1978 home is inspected for lead paint. If lead paint exists in the home, the housing rehabilitation program will include lead interim controls in the repair work to be done on the home.
