Lead-Based Paint Program
Introduction
Federal and state laws regulate contractors that perform work on homes and buildings that may contain lead-based paint.
 
The Construction Contractors Board (CCB) requires contractors(businesses) and individuals that perform certain work on "target housing" and "child-occupied facilities" to have specific licenses dependent on the work being performed.
