Each year, the National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) outreach campaign is aimed at awareness, action, and prevention. We bring together individuals, diverse organizations, industry, and state, tribal, and local governments nationwide. NLPPW is held this year from October 25-31, 2020. NLPPW highlights the many ways parents can reduce children’s exposure to lead in their environment and prevent its serious health effects. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our partners work to heighten awareness of lead poisoning, provide resources, and encourage preventive actions during NLPPW and beyond.
The Alameda County Healthy Homes Department has been building local capacity to support lead-safe property maintenance and renovation by working to incorporate RRP certification, staff training, and lead safety into building department and code enforcement operations and by promoting pro-active rental inspections that include lead safety. This presentation will explain the approaches and resources used, materials developed, and the role of partnerships in making lead-safe property maintenance and management a community standard.

Target Audience: Lead poisoning prevention and healthy homes advocates, state and local health, environmental health, and housing departments, building inspectors and code enforcement officers, lead hazard control grantees.
