New Hampshire is getting a $5 million federal grant to analyze efforts to reduce children’s blood-lead levels and identify human health impacts from flooding, among other projects.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant will allow the state’s Public Health Laboratories to enhance its biomonitoring program. Biomonitoring is the direct measurement of environmental chemicals in people’s blood and urine, indicating the amount of chemical that actually enters the body from all environmental sources.
