HUD National

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) joins its federal agency partners in highlighting National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW), October 22-28, 2023. HUD, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are working to raise awareness, provide resources, and encourage preventive actions to decrease childhood lead exposure during the week and beyond. The outreach materials the agencies have created are customizable, allowing partners to select and tailor information to best meet the needs of their local communities, and are centered around three key messages: Get the Facts, Get Your Child Tested, and Get Your Home Tested. For the full text, click here.
