HARRISBURG, Pa. (WENY) -- As part of continuing efforts to advance the Lead-Free PA initiative, the commonwealth is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to hear what the communities have to say.

Through the RFI, the Keystone State hopes to learn from communities about current needs and efforts to address lead hazards, and what gaps need to be filled.

The information will be used to inform regional task forces and fund distribution to address specific needs.

"By directly seeking the input of our communities and their partners, and pursuing all sources of funding, we are hopeful we can compile a complete list of needs so that funding, when allocated, goes directly to programs and initiatives that produce swift and measurable results toward protecting Pennsylvanians," Governor Wolf said.

RFI responses are due by 12 p.m. on December 2. Responses must be submitted electronically to RA-PWRFICOMMENTS@PA.GOV with "Lead Exposure Reduction Program RFI" in the email subject line.
