The Indiana Collaboration for Lead Action and Prevention (ICLAP), formed in 2021. Each team member and University brings a different background and skill set to the team which in turn gives the group a variety of ideas to act upon.
ICLAP strives to work with the community members, community organizations, and the government to provide citizens with the knowledge and skills to help solve this issue together. Environmental lead is an issue that will not be eliminated. It is important for all members of the community to work together in order to control lead.
