Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention

General Information:


The Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention (HHLPP) is funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which supports the coordination of lead poisoning prevention and surveillance services for children in Michigan, and the funding of pilot sites for primary prevention of lead poisoning through the identification of lead hazards in housing and the use of special environmental cleaning techniques to minimize lead for more information.

Blood Lead Testing Resources: 


Beginning October 1st of this year, with the discontinuation of select Mainframe processes, some difficulties have been encountered with Medicaid eligibility data feeds into the MDCH Data Warehouse.  To limit the risk of reporting inaccurate data, beginning with the month of October 2009, the "Medicaid Blood Lead Testing" and other reports will be temporarily suspended or delayed.   As soon as this problem has been corrected, new reports and a note announcing them will be posted here.  An e-mail notification will also be sent to stakeholders statewide. 




The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention and Control Commission was authorized in Public Act 400 of 2004 and sunset in 2010. Documents from the commission are available online.
