Impact of EPA’s Community Lead Awareness Initiative

Last year, EPA launched its Community Lead Awareness Initiative, which involved free educational sessions amidst communities most susceptible to lead exposure. Since the initiative’s inception, over 2,800 individuals from 102 different communities participated in 127 such sessions. This initiative also aligns with the Agency-wide Lead Strategy released in 2022, aiming to diminish lead exposure and enlighten communities about the risks associated with it.
