UAct also designed the HEALTHY KIDS AND COMMUNITIES CAMPAIGN and along with IPHA submitted a proposal for funding to connect high-risk families in Springfield, Illinois, with Community Health Workers to prevent the damaging, long-term health effects of pediatric lead poisoning. Community Health Workers from the Springfield Community Federation (a community-based organization embedded in the low-income Brandon Court public housing neighborhood) were to work closely with families in Springfield zip code 62703, an area designated as high-risk for pediatric lead poisoning by the Illinois Department of Public Health, to ensure that children received their required lead blood-level tests and that families learned about the dangers of lead exposure and how to employ practical prevention strategies. According to the funder this project missed the funding priority list by one project; it can be easily resurrected if an appropriate funding source becomes available.
