Examples of funded projects...

The first projects to receive financial assistance under this grant program were made late in fiscal year 1990. The awards will continue to State and city/county agencies to develop, expand, or improve childhood lead poisoning prevention programs and statewide surveillance. The awards will be used to strengthen grantees' capacity to perform the three core public health functions (assessment, policy development, and assurance) as they relate to childhood lead poisoning prevention and surveillance. Specifically, these programs will ensure the screening of children at risk of lead exposure; facilitate appropriate referral of children with elevated blood lead levels for medical and environmental interventions; and provide for the education of parents, health care providers, and others concerned about childhood lead poisoning prevention. In addition, programs will develop and implement childhood lead poisoning elimination plans, implement jurisdiction-wide targeted screening plans and establish childhood blood lead surveillance systems.
