FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Mayor Tom Henry and the City of Fort Wayne announced Thursday they received a grant for $680,000 to remediate lead paint houses.
The grant is expected to help 40 families who rent or own their homes and make less than 80 percent of the area's median income.
The Health Department will make referrals based on children who have been tested and have high blood-lead levels.
