GOSHEN — A state grant would help the county health department work with families whose children show a worrying level of lead in their blood.

The county health department is seeking a two-year, $453,468 blood lead level reduction grant from the Indiana State Department of Health. It would support one case manager in the nurse division who would be working with children who have shown elevated levels of lead in their blood, said Health Administrator Melanie Sizemore.
