The Department of Health and Human Services is the Federal government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially to those who are least able to help themselves.
Uses and Use Restrictions
The program provides funding to assist in eliminating childhood lead poisoning.
Grant awards may not be expended for medical care and treatment, or for environmental remediation of lead sources.
Applicants should review the individual CDC Funding Opportunity Announcement document issued under this CFDA program for any required proof or certifications that must be submitted prior to, or simultaneous with, submission of an application package.
Others who will receive benefits from the program include infants and children from six months to six years of age who are screened for lead poisoning and family members who care for lead-poisoned children. Lead poisoning potentially affects all children, but disproportionately affects minority children and children of low-income families. Since the side effects of lead poisoning can be long lasting, benefits of the program can also affect youth and adults, persons at all educational and income levels, and urban, suburban and rural populations.
Applicants must document the need for assistance, state the objectives of the project, outline the method of operation, describe the evaluation procedures and provide a budget justification for funds requested. OMB Circular No. A-87 applies to this program.
