Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP)

Lead can be very dangerous for children. Lead poisoning can affect your child’s ability to learn, pay attention, and behave. There are a number of ways your child could come in contact with lead.
 
For example, lead is in the paint and dust in homes and buildings built before 1978. It is also in pots and dishes that are old, handmade, or made outside the U.S. Certain cosmetics and imported candy may also contain lead.
 
Please follow the links below for more information about lead poisoning protection.
