Lead-Based Paint Inspection Program

Along with ensuring only certified and licensed professionals to conduct LBP activities within the Cherokee Nation, the tribe also uses its own staff to conduct various LBP activities. The Cherokee Nation maintains a staff of 7 LBP Inspector/Risk Assessors to do this. In coordination with the Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation (HACN), the CNEP conducts Inspections (which identify if there is LBP in a home and where it’s located) and Risk Assessments (which identify if and where LBP hazards occur).
