Tackling lead on the East Side and across the state


courtesy of East Side Neighborhood Development Company For the first year of a program created by the East Side Neighborhood Development Company — called the LeadSafeMN Initiative — three East Side census tracts where children showed high levels of lead in their blood were the focus. LeadSafeMN aims to create funding sources and resources to bring lead poisoning down to zero. The initiative will eventually address the 40 census tracts statewide where kids are testing for high levels of lead.

Lead poisoning is often thought of as a problem from the past, one that has been solved through requirements for safer paints and materials in homes.
