The mission of the Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is to protect the health of Delawareans by preventing childhood lead poisoning and promoting health among children (0 – 6 years of age) through education, safe environments, screening and early intervention.

HHLPP accomplishes this mission by:

  • Increasing public awareness of the dangers of lead poisoning
  • Preventing/controlling lead hazards before exposure occurs
  • Universal screening of pre-school children
  • Case management, education and/or environmental investigation for children found lead poisoned.
