Are you looking to De-Lead your Property?

The Brockton Redevelopment Authority (BRA) is committed to reducing childhood lead poisoning and has resources available to abate lead-based paint in the city of Brockton. BRA is now offering free assistance up to $15,000 per a unit to remove the dangerous lead hazards. The Lead Based Paint Hazard Control Program can provide additional helpful information about lead poisoning prevention and determine if you qualify for no-cost grant funds to help make your home lead-safe!

 Get your Home Tested. Before buying an older home (especially one built prior to 1978), ask for a lead inspection.

Get your Child Tested. Even if your young children seem healthy, ask your doctor to test them for lead exposure.

To schedule a free lead inspection or for more information about the program please contact our office at 508-586-3887 EXT. 2 or EXT. 6

Mayor Bill Carpenter Garage

1

“Mayor Bill Carpenter Parking Garage” is a state of the art, gateless, license plate recognition, 415 space parking facility in the heart of the Brockton Revitalization District. The Garage is within a half block of the Brockton commuter rail station and the nearby Brockton Area Transit (BAT) Intermodal Transportation Centre. This catalytic development has spurred significant investment and interest in our downtown district. From the development of the Petronelli Building located across the street to 19-31 Main Street and the development of several City and privately-owned parcels.
