HUD will webcast a convening discussing its proposed Lead Safe Housing Rule (see Memo, 9/6). The proposed rule would enhance HUD’s approach in responding to cases of children in HUD-assisted housing with an elevated blood lead level. At the convening, invited organizations, agencies, and federal partners will discuss the importance of strengthening work around childhood lead poisoning prevention. HUD Secretary Julián Castro will offer remarks, to be followed by a discussion with a panel of experts from the housing and health sectors. A set of breakout sessions will provide an opportunity for dialogue; however, breakout sessions will not be webcast and questions will only be taken from the live audience.
