Environmental Justice Legacy Pollution Cleanup Act of 2021 Sign On Letter – Join Now!
We are asking you and your organization to sign on to a Letter of Support for the Environmental Justice Legacy Pollution Cleanup Act of 2021. This newly proposed federal legislation is designed to advance racial equity and environmental justice through $200 billion in total housing infrastructure investments in communities, including commitments of $45 billion in lead paint hazard remediation, $45 billion in lead service line replacement, and $1 billion to Native American communities to address housing related health and safety hazards.
At this unprecedented time in our nation’s history, we hope you will join a diverse group of stakeholders in supporting this critical funding for lead poisoning prevention, green and healthy housing, clean water, and environmental justice. We need your help to show strong support for this much needed investment in housing and infrastructure, which has the potential to address lead paint hazards in 3,750,000 homes and provide critical capital investments for lead service line replacement nationwide. Eradicating lead and other hazards in low income homes will produce generational benefits in health, education and lifetime economic benefits for children in black and brown communities in particular that have been disproportionately burdened by lead’s toxic legacy. Please sign on to the Letter today!
