Today, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), on behalf of Michigan’s Child Lead Exposure Elimination Commission (CLEEC), released a Request for Proposal to select up to 10 projects to eliminate child lead exposure.
One-time grants of up to $75,000 will be awarded for projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to the elimination of child lead exposure and have the potential for replication throughout the state.
The CLEEC was established in 2017 to coordinate all efforts for the elimination of child lead exposure statewide, including the implementation of recommendations from the report A Roadmap to Eliminating Child Lead Exposure issued by the Child Lead Poisoning Elimination Board in November 2016. The commission prioritized the recommendations to develop a five-year Action Plan, grouping the objectives into six categories: regulations/laws, funding, testing, data, partnerships and education.
