Alameda County Community Development Agency

Oakland, California



The agency’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program has reduced lead hazards for Alameda County children through remediation efforts, home evaluations, case management and training in lead-safe construction practices. Grant assistance helps the Get the Lead Out coalition strengthen its infrastructure, extend its advocacy and educational outreach to day laborers and support the enforcement of lead-safe regulations for renovations.
