Title of Collaborative Activity:

President’s Task Force on Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks to Children: Lead Exposures Subcommittee

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The President's Task Force on Environmental Health and Safety Risks to Children is the focal point for coordinating the federal government's effort to explore, understand, and improve children's environmental health. The task force's objectives are to: 1) develop federal interagency strategies to protect children’s environmental health and safety; 2) identify priority children's environmental health and safety issues best addressed through federal interagency efforts; and 3) communicate information to federal, state, and local decision-makers to protect children from environmental health risks. The Lead Subcommittee seeks to reduce lead exposure and associated harms through collaboration among federal agencies and with a range of stakeholders, including states, tribes and local communities, along with businesses, property owners and parents. This Subcommittee will help federal agencies work strategically and collaboratively to reduce exposure to lead with the aim of ultimately improving children’s health.
