"Grand Rapids to Fight Lead Poisoning with Federal Grant Money"

GRAND RAPIDS-The city of Grand Rapids received five million dollars in grant money from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development today, and plans to use the money to fight lead poisoning in area children.

Grand Rapids contains three blocks with the highest lead infections in the state, and several other neighborhoods in the city are ranked among the most dangerous. Up to 40% of the children tested in these areas have high levels of lead in their blood. A grant for three million dollars will focus on the neighborhoods most affected by lead poisoning, while another grant, for two million dollars, will be used to rid 50 homes and 130 rentals throughout the city of lead.
