OLHCHH Grantees can now utilize multifaceted materials for National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week, with the aim of increasing program awareness and capacity. OLHCHH developed a Grantee Toolkit to help with outreach. This toolkit can be used together with the Partner Information Toolkit. Click here to download the Partner Information Toolkit.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S.. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our partners collaborate on a national outreach effort to observe National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW). This year NLPPW will be held from October 25-31, 2020.
We thank our grantees for the many suggestions they provided to improve success of this year's observance. These materials will be consistent with the overall interagency approach, but also provide customized resources for our grantees. We'll be developing several webinars, with additional information also to be found here.
NLPPW is a call to action to bring together families, individuals, community-based organizations. state and local governments and others, to increase lead poisoning prevention awareness and increase efforts to reduce childhood exposure to lead. NLPPW also highlights the many ways parents can reduce children's exposure to lead in their home environment and prevent its serious health effects. There are three key themes this year:
- Get the Facts: Find out about the hazards of lead.
- Get Your Home Tested: Find out how to minimize risks of lead exposure by hiring a certified professional to test older homes for lead.
- Get Your Child Tested: A simple blood test can detect lead. Consult your health care provider for advice on testing your children.
