Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs      

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.
