UPHE Awarded EPA Environmental Justice Small Grant

We are excited to announce that UPHE has been awarded our first federal grant from the EPA Environmental Justice Small Grants Program to protect children from lead poisoning.  This is especially important after reports on lead being present in the drinking water of more than 200 Utah schools and our state being #3 in the nation for toxic releases. UPHE is co-chair of the Utah Lead Coalition, which is working to identify more children at risk for lead poisoning.
