MICHIGAN CITY — The city will opt out of $2.3 million grant program to help remediate lead problems in homes, test children for lead, and train residents to help find and solve lead problems.

Last year, the city was awarded a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant under the Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction Grant program, a grant which was lauded by U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, U.S. Sen. Todd Young and former mayor Ron Meer.
