  20. Barriers to Success • Leaking Roofs • Uncertainty of Weatherization Dollars • Large cost of Lead Fixes/Enforcement • Unpaid Property Taxes • High Cost of Repairing Units

  21. Barriers to Success • Roofs and large houses in disrepair= ~mold/moisture/lead/pests/asthma ~No Weatherization Grants

  22. Barriers to Success • Uncertain Weatherization Dollars= ~cold/high energy bills/shut offs/’dirty’ air ~No WAP grants if: asbestos, roof leaks, water in basement

  23. Barriers to Success • Lead Issues • Costly • Some houses without kids under 6 • Many houses behind on taxes

  24. Barriers to Success Lead Issues • Wayne County Prosecutors Office enforcing the Michigan Landlord Penalty Law • Since 2005, 244 properties have been remediated due to WCPO • Have 119 open files • Need funding to keep this effort moving

  25. Barriers to Success • Unpaid Property Taxes • No Lead Fixes • Less mold/moisture repairs • More asthma • No PDD Lead Grants • No Citizens Bank Grants • Foreclosure and Homelessness
