Every year in Erie County, thousands of children under the age of six are diagnosed with elevated blood lead levels. Thousands more are exposed to lead hazards in their homes. Children affected by lead toxins are at greater risk of:

Lower IQ scores and
learning disabilities
Speech and hearing difficulties
Attention problems and behavior issues
"With LEAD716, we are focused on helping kids before they enter school — before they encounter learning problems — at an age when they are more resilient. It is our hope that, as a result of this project, children in Erie County who have been affected by lead will lead healthier, more successful lives."
