Lead Con '20  (a Wisconsin Lead Conference)

What is the conference about?

In 2020, there will be new efforts and new funding for lead reduction in Wisconsin.  In a typical year, about $3 million was available for lead reduction activities in Wisconsin.  In 2020 over $14 million dollars will be available for these efforts.  For local governments, this is an opportunity to help a lot more homeowners, landlords and tenants with Lead Hazards.  For contractors, this is an opportunity to do a lot more Lead Paint work.

We are having two, one-day conferences to answer questions about these new opportunities that are vital to landlords, abatement contractors, and renovators that want to step up to the world of lead abatement and assist with the Wisconsin Lead reduction efforts.

Both conferences days will have the same agenda.
