EPA Awards Nearly $100,000 to the State of Texas to Reduce Childhood Lead Poisoning
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded $94,126 to the Texas Department of State Health Services for the Texas Rural Actions to Improve Lead Surveillance (TRAILS) project. The goal of this project is to reduce childhood lead poisoning in rural areas with high incidences of elevated blood-lead levels and to reduce lead poisoning in under-studied areas with high potential for undocumented, elevated blood-lead levels. TRAILS seeks to educate rural communities and medical professionals on lead hazards exposures, nutrition, blood-lead levels, and the health effects of lead poisoning.
