Low Income Radon Mitigation Assistance Available

Montrose, COLO.— Montrose County Health and Human Services announces Low Income Radon Mitigation Assistance Program now available through Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The program utilizes funds from Colorado Revised Statute 25-11-114 to provide assistance to low-income individuals. The goal of the program is to enhance a safe living environment for low income homeowners in Colorado.

  

"Confirming elevated levels of radon in your home is concerning enough, yet many families and homeowners struggle to pay for the mitigation to keep their homes safe," said Public Health Manager Jim Austin. "Thankfully CDPHE has funds allocated to help ease the burden."

  

Montrose County Health and Human Services offers free short term radon test kits for homeowners. Please stop by 1845 South Townsend Avenue to pick up your test kit.

  

Homeowners must occupy the property as their primary residence. A radon test with a result greater than 4 picoCuries of radon per liter of air from a National Radon Safety Board or National Radon Proficiency Program approved test kit is also required. The funding assistance must not exceed $1,500 for the installation of radon mitigation system and post-mitigation testing. Funding is limited, therefore applications will be prioritized for funding based on the order received and completeness of the application. Homeowners with completed applications will be notified if funding is unavailable and the application will be prioritized for the next round of funding.
