The Lead Lawsuit Settlement

In July of 2019, after 16 years of vigorous litigation, a settlement was reached between 10 California jurisdictions and three paint manufacturers. ConAgra Grocery Products Co., NL Industries Inc. and Sherwin-Williams Company have agreed to pay into a multimillion-dollar fund to remove toxic lead paint hazards from residential properties. As a result, Healthy Homes Ventura County (HHVC) was created.

GOAL

Our primary goal is to remediate or remove lead hazards from the interior of privately-owned single-family residential properties built before 1978. Lead paint is the primary source of childhood lead poisoning. HHVC integrates health and safety interventions, lead hazard control, and housing rehabilitation for property owners by coordinating resources in an efficient manner to produce healthy homes. The program's approach will improve the housing for current and future occupants across Ventura County. HHVC funding will also be used for education and outreach activities related to lead abatement.
