About The Program
According to 2015 US Census estimates, the City of Stamford has a population of 129,113 people living within a land mass of 38 square miles. There are 51,165 housing units in the city and 20.5% were built before 1950. The older housing units tend to be more deteriorated than newer housing stock and are also mostly occupied by low income families, many with young children. As this housing stock continues to age the dangers associated with housing/lead based hazards become more prevalent. To increase awareness of childhood lead poisoning prevention, the City of Stamford Department of Health has collaborated with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and State of Connecticut Department of Public Health Lead Poisoning Program to identify and educate the most vulnerable population within the city on dangers of lead paint poisoning and how these risks can be prevented and controlled.
