Radon Mitigation Program

Radon is the second leading contributor to lung cancer in the United States. The gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless and occurs naturally as a direct decay of the element uranium in the soil. It is usually detected in the lowest levels of single-family homes, such as crawlspaces and basements. Radon is radioactive and is considered a health hazard because of its radioactivity.

The federally funded Radon Mitigation Program provides financial and technical assistance to income-eligible, homeowners throughout the city of Aurora. The program provides funds in the form of a grant for initial testing, mitigation and clearance testing for a total project cost not to exceed $2,500. Participation in the program is limited to one time only per applicant. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: Properties listed for sale and rental properties are not eligible for this program.

Applicant eligibility: Applicants must own and occupy the home; meet HUD's low/moderate income guidelines; be current on debt secured against the property.
