Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

City of Newark

Newark, New Jersey



The city’s Department of Child and Family Well-Being provides comprehensive health care, social and environmental services for Newark residents and other consumers to ensure an optimal level of health and welfare. This two-year grant, part of the Advancing Safe and Healthy Housing Initiative, enables the city to expand the Get The Lead Out program into a citywide Newark Healthy Homes Program that addresses home health and safety concerns in the community.
