Baltimore, Maryland - December 01, 2016: Ruth Ann Norton, president and CEO of Green & Healthy Homes Initiative stands outside a neighborhood in West Baltimore Thursday December 1, 2016. Many older homes in Baltimore still have uncovered lead paint and some run down homes are being sold through rent to own contracts. Such agreements can make tenants culpable for repairs and maintenance, but because they don't have deeds to their property, they have no access to local grants to help with repairs.
