The science is clear. Lead and radon can impact a child’s development, growth and learning. That’s why we developed the 1000 Hours a Year program and are committed to improving the environments where children learn. 

Healthy schools make for healthy learning. 1000 Hours A Year is helping schools, child care centers and after-school programs in Allegheny County address environmental hazards, like lead and radon, to keep children healthy and safe in the places they learn. Take action, read the FAQ and apply for a grant to protect children where they learn.
