    The Child and Adolescent Health Program (CAHP) at the New Jersey Department of Health provides technical assistance and professional guidance to local health department staff that conduct case management and environmental investigation services for children identified as having elevated blood lead levels per N.J.A.C. 8:51. Three regional coalitions provide community-based outreach and education with a focus on creating lead-safe housing, promoting age-appropriate blood lead screenings, and minimizing residents’ exposures to non-housing sources of lead (e.g. consumer products). In partnership with Isles, Inc, the CAHP administers the New Jersey Healthy Homes Training Center to ensure health and social services home visitors and housing inspectors are competent in identifying home hazards, in addition to lead-based paint, that contribute to poor health outcomes. Through a federal grant, the Program oversees a Superstorm Sandy Recovery: Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Initiative to outreach to vulnerable populations in nine most-affected counties. The CAHP can be reached by calling 609-292-5666.

    Tamara: I had included it with my reply (under my name and email), but it obviously didn’t post. Here it is– It’s being updated 1) separate pages for consumer and professionals and 2) information on healthy homes. Crystal
