Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

Lead poisoning can be very harmful to children. Children under 6 are the most vulnerable to the effects of lead poisoning. Lead can be inhaled or ingested, and the level of lead builds up in a person's blood.  

The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs (CLPPP's) goals are to:

  • Educate the public about the dangers of lead
  • Assist families in eliminating sources of lead in their homes.  

If you think your child has been exposed to lead, that your house contains sources of lead, or if your child demonstrates any of the symptoms of lead poisoning, please call our program at 1-800-346-6520
