Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs
The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs (CLPPPs) systematically perform blood lead screening tests on children age 6 and under, focusing on children with the highest risk of being lead poisoned.
CLPPPs also provide the following:
- Diagnostic services and medical treatment referrals;
- Lead hazard investigations in the homes of lead-poisoned children;
- Technical assistance to property owners and local health officials regarding the remediation of lead-based paint hazards; and
- Community, professional, and parent education regarding lead poisoning.
Services are provided through grants with local community-based CLPPPs located in Allegheny, Chester, Erie, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties and the cities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Chester, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and York.
