LEAD HAZARD REDUCTION PROGRAM (LHRP)

LEAD HAZARD REDUCTION PROGRAM (LHRP): "Each year, hundreds of children in our area are tested and found to have elevated blood lead levels. They will suffer lifetime effects of lead poisoning, including impaired physical development, lower educational performance, attention problems, and aggressive or even violent behavior.

Lead paint is likely to exist in any home built before 1978. We have more than 57,000 children living in greater Rochester that need our help to ensure that lead hazards in the home are identified and controlled. This effort begins with you."
