Lead and Healthy Homes Organizing Project
This project will support the children in immigrant and refugee communities, residing in Springfield and Brockton, MA. Specifically, the project activities will include: providing outreach, education, and training; developing local collaboratives by funding community-based partners to identify and engage key stakeholders; supporting community needs assessment activity; promoting the development, implementation and ownership of lead prevention action plans; reviewing, revising and developing ordinances; and, incorporating mechanisms to make these efforts sustainable beyond the EPA funding period.
In the long term, the project will dovetail with existing and evolving statewide efforts to promote healthy homes in Massachusetts, including programs focusing on lead and other home-based public health problems, such as asthma, pest control and violence prevention.
