The Healthy Homes Construction Careers (HHCC) program was developed by Employ Milwaukee in partnership with the Coalition on Lead Emergency (COLE), Social Development Commission (SDC), and Revitalize MKE to provide a supply of trained and certified workers to take jobs remediating lead paint hazards in Milwaukee homes.
HHCC is generously funded through the City of Milwaukee via the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The program aims to connect trained workers with Lead Abatement certifications to contractors who are paid by the City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) to remediate high lead risk homes. MHD’s efforts have been boosted by a $26M City of Milwaukee ARPA investment that will remediate over 800 homes in the next two years, creating a strong demand for qualified construction workers.
