State Health Department Policies for Children with Elevated Blood Lead Levels

NCHH asked state health departments about their policies for intervening for children with elevated blood lead levels. This document summarizes the information it has received to date. Note that local health departments were not queried, and many have policies that are distinct from the state. Any errors or omissions are NCHH’s. Regulations/legislative citations have been received for several of the states and are available upon request.
