EPA will be hosting two virtual training sessions for local government officials to learn more about the LLAP Guide and how to use it:
The Local Lead Action Plan (LLAP) Guide is a framework that provides local government officials with resources to identify lead issues in their city, town, community, county, or other geographic area (local area), then develop a sustainable, targeted action plan using the LLAP Template.
Lead exposure can result from multiple sources since lead can be found in all parts of our environment – the air, the soil, the water, and even inside our homes - making it complicated to address. The LLAP Guide is designed to help local government officials respond to the challenges of identifying and addressing lead comprehensively, whether their local area has been working on lead issues for decades or is just beginning this work. Benefits of using the LLAP Guide include creating a broader awareness of lead issues among local officials, helping them clearly define goals and prioritize actions regarding lead, and creating an action plan that acknowledges and addresses the specific lead issues and needs of a particular local area.
The LLAP Guide is not designed to provide instructions on how to solve a local area’s lead problems; rather, it is a voluntary tool that local government officials can use to organize their approach to addressing the specific lead issues impacting their local area.
