A Reuters investigation has found at least four city zip codes here where 40 percent of children tested from 2006 to 2014 had high lead levels. The rate of high lead tests in these areas was eight times greater than what was found among children in Flint, Michigan during the city’s recent water crisis. Federal support has helped families in cities like Buffalo, by moving them into new apartments funded by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. However, President Donald Trump wants deep federal budget cuts, which would take billions from programs used by local governments to protect children from the lifelong health impacts of lead exposure.
