Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Wayne State University

Detroit, Michigan



The university’s Center for Urban Studies created and oversees a Lead Housing Database that links houses in Detroit and Wayne County to multiple cases of lead-poisoned children. Grant assistance allows the center to expand the database, improve the coordination of services and interventions, and help partner agencies reduce home health risks to children.
