EPA Funds Grants for Four Lead Poisoning Prevention Projects in Michigan Communities
Date:2/22/2008

Lead Safe Work Practices lesson plans in Spanish.

The Michigan projects are among 13 in the six-state region that received more than $1 million in lead grant money last year. More than 60 proposals were received from groups in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.

According to the Centers for Disease Control there were 13.5 million children in the U.S. in 1978 with elevated blood lead levels. By 2002, that number had dropped to 310,000.

While children in the U.S. can be exposed to lead from a variety of sources, their primary source of lead exposure is lead-based paint, including the dust and paint chips from deteriorating paint or from improperly conducted renovation work involving the paint.

Additional information on these and other grants can be found at http://www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/grantmap.htm.
