WEST MICHIGAN - All week we’ve brought you voices from all sides of the lead issue.
Yes, it’s an old problem, but it's problem that's yet to be solved. Lead paint was banned in the '70s. So, why is it still a problem? Because this paint still exists in many of West Michigan’s old homes and no one is responsible for removing it.
So, now what?
Our parent company TEGNA recently awarded a grant to HHC in order to help them fund dust sampling and intervention supplies.
But that’s just one part of the puzzle -- everyone has a role to play. Share this information online, talk to your neighbors about it, reach out to legislators or help funding lead paint removal.
Donate your voice, your time or your money. Whatever you can do to help protect West Michigan’s kids.
