According to the abstract, The Center for New North Carolinians will continue to partner with the Lead-Safe Housing Program to deliver relevant community educational information in a variety of formats, including translated written materials and information sessions conducted in key languages. Many immigrants with limited English language skills continue to live in low-income substandard housing and are not aware of lead-based paint hazards and other health and safety issues. The center will continue efforts toward preventing and eliminating lead poisoning among at-risk families and promoting healthy living conditions.
