社区基金会为铅测试和宣传项目提供资助

社区基金会参与式预算项目的亚军获得了 LeadSafeCNY 补助金。

纽约州中部社区基金会(Central New York Community Foundation)最近颁发了三笔总额为 13 万美元的LeadSafeCNY拨款,用于帮助解决锡拉丘兹市儿童铅中毒问题。 受援组织在基金会于 5 月举行的参与式预算编制项目中获得亚军。

纽约中部联合之路获得 30,000 美元,用于增加接受检测的儿童人数,消除交通障碍,使儿童在接到检测指令后能够前往儿科医生办公室或血液实验室接受检测。 我们将为有 0 至 6 岁儿童的家庭提供免费的 Lyft 往返接送服务,尤其关注锡拉丘兹市内检测量较少或阳性率较高的邮政编码。

锡拉丘兹缔造和平项目(Syracuse Peacemaking Project)获得 50,000 美元,用于与 PEACE 公司(PEACE, Inc.

宝贝 B.A.C.K. “获得了 50,000 美元,用于与锡拉丘兹市学区、奥农达加县卫生局和锡拉丘兹市合作,举办全市青少年预防铅中毒公益广告挑战赛。 他们的目标是提高奥农达加县家庭的认识和教育,重点关注高风险邮区。

今年 5 月,社区基金会邀请锡拉丘兹所有居民参加为期一天的投票,以选择全市范围内哪个项目将获得 15 万美元的赠款,用于帮助提高铅检测和铅意识。 获奖项目由国际村出生组织和 Sankofa 生殖健康和治疗中心设计。 获得选票但未获奖的项目受邀申请 LeadSafeCNY 拨款。

“社区基金会战略倡议项目官员达雷尔-白金汉(Darrell Buckingham)说:”虽然只有一个项目能在参与式预算编制过程中胜出,但提交的每个想法都有既定计划,可以帮助我们在锡拉丘兹增加儿童铅检测。 “支持这些计划将有助于确保我们在让儿童接受检测和让家庭了解铅中毒危害的过程中不遗余力”。

社区基金会于 2018 年成立了 LeadSafeCNY,承诺投资 200 万美元资助各种方法,以解决该地区儿童铅中毒率高的问题。 根据奥农达加县卫生局的数据,在 2022 年接受检测的锡拉丘兹儿童中,有 11.2% 的儿童血铅含量超标。 迄今为止,通过 LeadSafeCNY 向社区投入的资金总额为 2,156,014 美元。
