The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health, Health Hazards Control Unit (HHCU) administers two Lead-Based Paint Hazard Management programs in the state of North Carolina in lieu of EPA: one for Abatement Activities (LHMP) and the other for Renovation, Repair and Painting (LHMP-RRP).

Through these programs, the HHCU provides information to the public and to business and industry about the health hazards of lead-based paint and ways to control or prevent lead poisoning. The HHCU certifies firms and individuals conducting lead-based paint abatement activities and/or renovation activities, accredits training providers and courses, and issues permits for lead-based paint abatement projects that occur in child-occupied facilities and housing built before 1978. The HHCU also inspects lead-based paint abatement and renovation projects.
