Some homeowners and renters in 11 Western Pennsylvania counties may be eligible for free health and safety inspections of their home, the Allegheny County Health Department announced today.

The inspections point out potential hazards, such as allergens, asthma triggers, carbon monoxide dangers, lead-based paint exposure and electrical and fire safety problems and recommend fixes.

Funded by a Pennsylvania Department of Health Maternal and Child Health grant, the inspections are available to residents of Allegheny Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland counties.

To qualify for the program, families must own or rent property in one of the 11 counties, have someone 17 or younger living in the house and have an income at or below 300 percent of federal poverty guidelines, $69,151 for a family of four.
