Giving priority to underserved and vulnerable neighborhoods, Clean Water Fund’s Lead Hazard Awareness Project (LHAP) provides educational presentations to orient and assist residents in identifying lead poisoning hazards that may be present in soil, dust, paint, drinking water plumbing, and consumer products within their homes and communities.

Residents interested in becoming Green Ambassadors can reach out for in-home “walk-throughs” where Clean Water Fund will assist them in identifying possible lead sources in their own homes so they may learn to do the same for their neighbors.
