The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) is pleased to announce a second competition round of Lead Poisoning Prevention Catalytic Grant Awards. GHHI’s goal is to grow and strengthen the network of organizations dedicated to advancing the National Lead Campaign to end childhood lead poisoning nationwide. GHHI is making catalytic grant investments in organizations in five local jurisdictions that demonstrate excellence and best practices while working to achieve the eradication of lead exposure in their communities. GHHI wants to support grass roots organizations in building their local capacity while expanding the field of lead poisoning prevention leaders across the United States.
The Lead Catalytic Awards will offer five grants of $20,000 each in direct funding and $10,000 in technical assistance to the awardees from GHHI’s team of national experts. These grants support innovative, community-based organizations working to eliminate lead poisoning by: implementing lead poisoning prevention policies and best practices, increasing effective communication and public awareness and developing strategies that increase lead hazard reduction investments in primary prevention.
