Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention and Surveillance of Blood Lead Levels in Children
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides funding for childhood lead poisoning prevention and surveillance.
Required strategies and activities include:
- Blood lead testing and reporting
- Blood lead surveillance
- Linkages of lead-exposed children to recommended services
- Develop targeted population-based policy interventions focused on primary prevention of lead exposure
A major focus of the program is to improve the ability to identify, screen, refer, and monitor high-risk children with the aim of reducing disparities in blood lead levels and associated health outcomes, thus improving social determinants of health among populations at greatest risk.
Populations at greatest risk include:
- Non-English speaking populations
- People with limited health literacy
- Tribal populations
- People living in rural areas and other geographically underserved communities
Eligible applicants include:
- City or township governments
- County governments
- Local governments or their bona fide agents
- State governments or their bona fide agents
- Federally recognized Tribal governments
