Lead Information - Parents and Caregivers



This is Lead information for Parents and Caregivers

The mission of the Office of Lead Poisoning Prevention (OLPP) is to protect the health of Delawareans by preventing childhood lead poisoning and promoting health among children (0 – 6 years of age) through education, safe environments, screening and early intervention.


General Information

  • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Lead-Based Paint Disclosure Rule - The Lead-Based Paint Disclosure Rule was established to protect families from exposure to lead from paint, dust and soil. The rule requires the disclosure of known information on lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards before the sale or lease of most housing built prior to 1978. Sellers, landlords and their agents are responsible for providing this information to the buyer or renter before sale or lease.

For more information, please contact the Office of Lead Poisoning Prevention.
