Key Federal Programs to Reduce Childhood Lead Exposures and Eliminate Associated Health Impacts

Reducing lead exposure in children, particularly in minority and low-income children who often are disparately exposed, is a priority of the President’s Task Force on Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks to Children. The Task Force, which comprises representatives of 17 federal agencies and offices, today releases a new report, Key Federal Programs to Reduce Childhood Lead Exposures and Eliminate Associated Health Impacts, that compiles federal efforts currently planned or underway to understand, prevent, and reduce various sources of lead exposure to children.

This report provides a starting point for the development of a comprehensive federal lead strategy that will identify steps needed to further reduce lead exposures to children in the United States. It also provides a basis for increased coordination and collaboration among federal agencies to further protect the nation’s children.
