Lead Safe Child Care Pilot

The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition, a public-private partnership managed by Enterprise, Starting Point and Cleveland Clinic launched a new Lead Safe Child Care Pilot, the first-of-its-kind in the nation to provide child care providers with grant funds and services to address and eliminate lead hazards. The program, funded by Cleveland Clinic, is an urgent response to eliminate lead poisoning in Cleveland children, who are four times more likely to have elevated blood lead levels than the national average.
