Allegheny County Health Department extends its outreach on lead exposure through grants

The Allegheny County Health Department is making efforts to educate residents about the dangers of lead by issuing small grants to local groups where people may be at danger of high exposure.  


ACHD announced Thursday that it will be awarding ten “mini-grants,” totaling $38,900, to community organizations such as the Homewood Children’s Village ($3,000) and the Perry Hilltop Citizens Council ($5,000) to educate individuals on the sources and consequences of lead, as well as the importance of prevention and universal blood level testing.
