Objective
Funding is awarded to states, territories, and tribes to assist local educational agencies in voluntary testing for lead contamination in drinking water at schools and child care facilities. The principal objective of the assistance to be awarded under this program is to test schools and child care facilities for lead contamination in drinking water, using EPA’s 3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water guidance or the at least equivalent applicable state regulations or guidance regarding reducing lead in drinking water in schools and child care facilities (see: https://www.epa.gov/dwreginfo/3ts-reducing-lead-drinking-water-schools-and-child-care-facilities). EPA's 3Ts, Training, Testing, and Taking Action, provide tools for schools, child care facilities, states, and water systems to implement voluntary lead in drinking water testing programs. Funding supports: (1) reducing children’s exposure to lead in drinking water; (2) helping states and territories target funding toward schools unable to pay for testing; (3) using the 3Ts model, or at least equivalent model, to establish best practices for lead in drinking water prevention programs; (4) fostering sustainable partnerships at the state and local level to allow for more efficient use of existing resources and exchange of information among experts in various educational and health sectors; and (5) enhancing community, parent, and teacher cooperation and trust. Funding Priority - Fiscal Year 2021: The priority is to continue awarding funds to reduce lead in drinking water in schools and child care facilities through planning, public education, testing and outreach. This voluntary effort focuses on contamination in drinking water at schools and child care programs that are in disadvantaged and low-income areas. The grant program requires EPA’s 3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools guidance to develop and implement programs in schools and child care facilities, and to identify and correct sources of lead in drinking water.
